Excerpt from Lancelot Andrewes and His Private Devotions: A Biography, a Transcript and an Interpretation

The Transcript of Andrewes's Private Devotions contained in this volume was made with the current Greek and Latin printed texts and with the translations of Drake, Stanhope, Hall, Newman, Neale, and Venables, as well as that of a private hand, before the transcriber. Newman's translation from the Greek is above praise, and it is enough to say of Neale's translation from the Latin that it is not unworthy to stand beside Newman's English. It will be seen that free use has been made of both; but it seemed peculiarly fitting, in a work so largely scriptural in its phraseology, that preference should be given, wherever possible, to the matchless language of the Authorised Version, in the production of which Bishop Andrewes had so large a share. Certain other modifications in the Transcript have their authority in the lately recovered and exceedingly valuable Laudian text, edited by Canon Medd and published by the Society for the Promotion of Christian Knowledge, which still waits for translation. The Biography and the Interpretation were delivered as opening lectures to classes formed this session for the study of some of the great mystical, spiritual, and devo tional writers.
