Book review

Excerpt from Sermons, Biographical Miscellaneous

This volume consists of two parts, according to its title. The Biographies are very various in the characters they bring before us, the epochs to which they belong, and the mode of treating them. Jowett seems indeed to have intended to make a regular series of such sermons, but he did not carry this intention into effect. The sermons were produced one by one as some great character struck his imagination, or, in the case of contemporaries, as one and another passed away. In some cases, as in the sermon on Loyola, the life is embedded in reflexions; in others, as in that on Wycliffe or on Pascal, it is left to tell its own tale. 'I do not think it desirable,' he says, 'that we should be always drawing morals or seeking for edification. Of great men it may be truly said that it does us good only to look at them.'
