Comments

John Gauden (1605-1662) at time of publication of this volume was Dean of Bocking (in Essex), the following year he was appointed Bishop of Exeter and 2 years later made Bishop of Worcester. During the English Civil War he sided with the Parliamentary Party, though he did not support the execution of Charles I in 1649. He is best remembered for his claim to authorship of the Eikon Basilike (in Greek) The Pourtrature of His Sacred Majestie in His Solitudes and Sufferings, a work attributed to Charles I and published just days after his execution. The question of authorship has never been solved and Gauden remains in the running.
