The Masterpiece of George Herbert, published now in an special edition that reproduces the exact format of the verses of the original edition of 1633. Herbert is one of the greatest religious poets of the English language, an author that influenced a group of poets, known today as the Metaphysical School of Poets.

His works have inspired generations of Christians and remains important today for every living soul under the Sun. Herbert has said of his writings: they are a picture of spiritual conflicts between God and my soul before I could subject my will to Jesus, my Master. His poems have a precision of language, a metrical versatility, and an ingenious use of imagery or conceits.

The original work was divided in two volumes and The Temple - Second Part will be available soon. The work now presented -The Temple - First Part- has 63 poems transported to digital in a format as faithful as possible to the 1633 edition, trying to reproduce the forms and peculiar rhythms that Herbert creates by a careful positioning of words in a poem.

Some of Herberts poems remained until today as hymns, including King of Glory, King of Peace, Let All the World in Every Corner Sing and Teach me, my God and King.
