By Jeremy Taylor (1660, edited by Reginald Heber, 1828).
One of the most important and substantial Anglican devotional guides ever written, The Cambridge History of English and American Literature calls it 'the abiding possession of the English people.' Taylor combines rigorous theological attention to the doctrine of the Holy Eucharist along with comparatively simple prayers of preparation and thanksgiving for Communion.
