About Sir Thomas Browne
The erudite English doctor Sir Thomas Browne, who wrote a number of
books on science and religion, was known for his baroque prose style and
his controversial opinions. He was born on October 19, 1605 in London
and settled in Norwich to practice medicine. He wrote his most famous
book, Religio Medici (The Religion of a Physician), an intellectual
autobiography, in 1635. A friend published it in 1642 without his
permission, embarrassing him, but the book’s popularity encouraged him
to write more. He died on October 19, 1682.
