Thomas Fuller was one of England’s most prolific authors, publishing works of history, theology and poetry during his lifetime. As well as an encyclopedia of England’s noble families, he wrote a history of the Crusades, a history of the Church of England, and several volumes’ worth of sermons.
The editor includes several of Fuller’s other diagnostic, cultural-critical essays, Good Thoughts in Worse Times and others among them. Readers have taken comfort in Fuller’s words in days of conflict and strife.
Thomas Fuller (1608 – 16 August 1661) was an English churchman and historian. He is now remembered for his writings, particularly his Worthies of England, published after his death. He was a prolific author, and one of the first English writers able to live by his pen (and his many patrons).
