FULLER, Thomas
The holy state
Cambridge: R[oger]. D[aniel]. for John Williams, 1648. I am limited to 12 photos on eBay, but I have many more photos on my website...just ask. 'The Holy State and the Profane State' is a 17th-century book by English historian Thomas Fuller. Through maxims and short commentary, Fuller describes the roles and life of every member of the holy state and the profane state (i.e. good people vs. bad people) - instruction on how to live a good life for wives, husbands, and children, physicians, merchants, notes on how to travel, service roles for bishops, and others. Fuller balances the roles of good living with those who live the 'profane' life - hypocrites, liars, atheists, tyrants, witches (including the Witch of Endor), and even comments on Joan of Arc as a villain!
