But of this " Homer of Divines," (William Thompson: Granger's Biog. Hist., v. 21, n.,) this "Shakspeare of the Church," (Hannah More,) this "Spenser of English Theological Literature," we must needs quote some more opinions of eminent authorities. Of the continued popularity of his works after his decease, a distinguished author, born less than four years after Taylor was gathered to his fathers, thus writes:
u We see the Reverend Doctor's Treatises standing, as it were, in the front of this order of authors, and a* the Ion-moat of those Good Books used by the politest and most refined Devotees of either sex. They maintain the principal place in the study of almost every elegaut and high Divine. They stand in folios and other volumes, adorned with variety of pictures, gildings, and other decorations, on the advanced shelves in glass cupboards of the lady's closets. They are in use at all seasons, and for all places; as well for Church Service as Closet Preparation; and, in short, may vie with any devotional hooks in British ClirisUndom"—Earl of Shaftesbury's Characteristics, iii. 327.
One of the most zealous of Roman Catholics and most excellent of men characterizes him as
"the highly gifted and learned Jeremy Taylor, than whom the whole Protestant church boasts no fairer name." — Charles Butler.
Some of his Protestant commentators are not disposed to deal in unqualified commendation of the tendency of portions of his works:
"Bishop Taylor ia a writer of the first-rate powers, with a fine imagination, and much devotion, holiness, and humility. Yet he is too ascetic, and nan too little of the good tidings of the gospel. . . . He fell into something of Pelag an errors, and, like Warbnrton, did not consider the immortality of the soul revealed to the Patriarchs. It is also to be regretted that prayers for the dead have received countenance from some passages in his writings. ... A fine, rich imagination, with great devotion, but a tone of divinity below that of the Reformers, and in some material points erroneous." — Rev. K. Bickeestlth: Ctirittwn Student, 4th ed., 249, 446.
"In learning he was scarcely inferior to any theologian whatever; and in richness of imagination he i» superior to all. On the subject of original sin, and of the justification of man before God, his sentiments differed from those of the established church of which he was a member; but on other point* of Christian verity .his views were generally correct. He is one of those few authors 'the dust of whose works is gold;' and as long as the English language is understood, his volumes will constitute some of its choicest treasures. Through the whole of his numerous writings the flame of genius and of devotion burns with unabated and unexampled strength."—Dr. E. WilLiams: Christian lreachcrt 5th ed., 3Co.
We continue our quotations:
"Taylor and Barrow are incomparably the greatest preachers and divines of their age. But my predilection is for Taylor. He has all the Abundance nnd solidity of the other, with a ray of lightning of his own, which, if he did not derive it from Demosthenes and Tally, has at least as generous and noble an original. It is true they are both incompti, or, rather, exuberant. But it is for such little preachers as the Preacher of Lincoln's Inn [himself] to hide their barrenness by the finicalness of culture."—Bishop Warlntrton to Httrd: Letters from a Late Eminent fretate, Lett. I., (7. r.,) n.
"Hooker is the object of our reverence, Barrow of our admiration, and Jeremy Taylor of our love. Few have equalled the latter in variety of learning, in fertility of imagination, in vigour of thinking, in rectitudo of intention and holiness of life. His controversial writings, fraught as they are with guileless ardour, with peerless eloquence, and with the richest stores of knowledge, historical, classical, scholastic, and theological, may be considered as irrefragable proofs of his pure, affectionate, and dutiful attachment to the Reformed Chinch of England. . . . Often has my mind hung with fondness and admiration over the crowded, yet clear and Inminons, galaxies of imagery diffused through the works of Bishop Tay lor."—Dr. Parr.
For other comparisons between Taylor, Barrow, and Hooker, see Barrow, Isaac, D.D., (p. 132;) Hooker, Richard, (p. 880.) Hazlitt (Leets. on the Dramat. Lit. of the Age of Elizabeth, Lect. VII.) draws a contrast, which the reader must not fail to peruse, between the styles of Jeremy Taylor and Sir Thomas Browne.
*' When the name of Jeremy Taylor is no longer remembered with reverence," concludes Hazlitt, " genius will have become a mockery, nnd virtue an empty shade!"
"'The crowded, yet clear and luminous, galaxies of imagery diffused through the works of Bishop Taylor,' are mentioned in glowing terms by Dr. Parr. It must, however, be admitted that his warmth of imagination is sometimes more conspicuous than his sobriety of judgment. His style is distinguished by its vivacity, and is more fluent and unencumbered than that of his most eminent predecessors in English literature. His popularity continues unimpaired."—Dr. David Irving: Life of Taylor, in .Encyc. Brit., 7th ed., xxi., (1842,) 126.
"Endowed with a mind of prodigious fertility, which a vast erudition rendered more luxuriant, he accumulates without selection whatever presents it>elf to his mind; his innumerable quotations, his multiplied reasonings, his prodigality of epithets and appositions, arc poured along the interminable periods of his writings, with a frequency of repetition, sometimes of the same phrases, which leaves us to suspect that be revised but little what he had very rapidly composed. Certain it is that, in his different works, he does not quite adhere to himself; and it would be more desirable to lay this on the partial views that haste and impetuosity prod nee, than on a deliberate employment of what he knew to be insufficient reasoning. But 1 must acknowledge that Taylor's fairness does not seem his characteristic quality."—Hai.lam: Lit. Hist, ofEurope,ii. 354, (9. v.) See, also, Index.
"From the little I have yet read, I am strongly inclined to think this said Jeremy is the most completely eloquent writer in our language. There, is a most manly and graceful ease and freedom in his composition, while a strong intellect is working logically through every paragraph, while nil manner of beautiful images fall in as by felicitous accident."—John Foster : Life and Oorresp., ed. 1855, i. 339. See, also. Index.
"The most eloquent of divines! had I said of men, Cicero would forgive me, and Demosthenes nod assent."—Coleriikjk.
"The writings of Plato and Bishop Taylor, and the Theoria Sacra of Burnet, furnish undeniable proofs that poetry of the highest kind may exist without metre, and even without the contradistinguishing objects of a poem."—Coleridge : Biog. Lit., ch. xiv.
"Jeremy Taylor's 'Holy Dying,' he [Coleridge] affirmed, fs a perfect poem, and in all its particulars, even the rhythm, may be compared with Young's 'Night Thought*."'— Hesrt Crabb Robinson: Diary, ed. Bost., 1870, i. 200.
"We have no modern sermons in the English language that can be considered as very eloquent. . . . For eloquence we must ascend as hi^li its the days of Barrow and Jeremy Taylor; and even there, while we are delighted with their fancy, we are in danger of being suffocated by a redundance which abhors all discrimination,—which compares till it perplexes,and illustrates till it confounds."—Rtv. Sydney Smith: Works, ed. 1854, i. 10: from Edin. Hex., Oct. 1802, 83.
'• Nor are the boldness and the fancy, the endless variety and unexpected sallies, of Taylor, to be matched by other divines, any more than they are to be ventured upon by snch as duly regard the severe taste which the solemnity of the occasion prescribes."—Lord Brougham: Contrih. to Edin. Iter., 18S6, i. Vl8.
The singularity of the opinion next to be quoted excites admiration at the boldness of the critic:
"With all his genius, learning, and industry, Jeremy Taylor never could be a poet, because be never went beyond himself,— beside himself, if you will. He has put the question beyond doubt; ho tried verse; but his lines are like petrifactions, glittering, and hard,and cold; formed by a slow but certain process in the laboratory of abstract thought; not, like flowers, springing spontaneously from a kindly soil, fresh and fragrant and blooming in open day. The erudite divine is always in his study. He never goes out to meditate in the field at eventide, as Isaac did."—James Montgomery: Ltcts. on Gent. Lit., Port., rf-c., Lect. III.
Such a verdict ill agrees with this:
"Whether he describes the duties, or dangers, or hopes of man, or the mercy, power, and justice of the Most High; whether he exhorts or instructs his brethren, or offers up his supplications in their behalf to the common Father of all, his conceptions and his expressions belong to the loftiest and most sacred description of poetry, of which they only want—what they cannot be said to need—tlm name and the metrical arrangement."—Bishop Heber: Life of Taylor.
"Some of the old English prose-writers (who were not poets) are the best, and, at the same time, the most poetical, in the favourable sense. Among thesc we may reckon some of the old divines, and Jeremy Taylor at the head of them. There is a flush like the dawn over his writings, the sweetness of the rose, the freshness of the morning dew. There is a softness in his style proceeding from the tenderness of his heart; but his head is firm and his hand is free. His material* are as finely wrought up ns they are original and attractive in themselves, Milton's prose style savours too much of poetry, and, as 1 have already hinted, of an imitation of tho Latin. Dry-den's is perfectly unexceptionable, and a model, in simplicity, strength, and pcrspicuitv, for the subjects he treated of."—Hazlitt: TableTall; Essay XXIV.: On the /Vo#e StyU of Potts.
"We will venture to assert that there is in any ono of the prose folios of Jeremy Taylor more fine fancy and original imagery,—more brilliant conceptions and glowing expressions,— more new figures,and niorenppliratiotisof old figures,—more, iu short, of the body and soul of poetry, than in all the odes and tho epics that have since been produced in Europe.*'—Lord Jeffrey-: Contrib. to Edin. lin-., 1853, 377 : from Edin. Her., Aug. 1811, 278.
"Jeremy Taylor," exclaims the author of Ion, "stands altogether alone among churchmen. Who has ever manifested any portion of that exquisite intermixture of a yearning love with a heavenly fancy which enabled him to embody and render palpable the holy charities of his religion in the loveliest and most delicate images? Who has ever so encrusted his subjects with candied words; or has seemed, like him. to lake away the sting of death with ' rich conceit;' or has, like him, half persuaded his hearers to believe that they heard the voice of pitying angels ?"—TaIf mrd's Misce,It. Writings: from London Magazine.
To these enthusiastic admirers of Jeremy Taylor is to be added (on the authority of a letter to the author of this Dictionary) the name of a great master of our language, who has but recently "ceased from his labours."
"I should think any one would guess from his [DeQuincey's] works what a great admiration he had for Shakspearo nnd Milton. I do not think that people would gather the same opinion as regards Jeremy Taylor; and yet I think he would have placed him beside those two great towers of strength."—Emily Jane De. Quincey (o S. Austin Jllibone, Lasswade, Mar. 31, IRW).
