An Anglican priest, scholar, and hymnist, John Mason Neale contributed significantly to the field of church history in the nineteenth century. In the four volumes on the Psalms edited by Neale and R.F. Littledale, the writings of Church Fathers and other scholars of the Middle Ages are woven together into a comprehensive commentary. In the next six volumes of this impressive 12-volume collection, Neale offers vivid detail on the mystical theology, worship, history, and peculiarities of the Eastern Church as compared with the West. This collection also includes Neale’s survey of important sermons and writings of medieval preachers.

John Mason Neale (1818–1866) was a translator, scholar, hymn-writer, and priest in the Church of England. Born in London to an Anglican minister, Neale became fond of the Oxford Movement later in life and, as a result, found opposition from both his diocesan bishop and his congregation. Forced to resign, he spent most of his life working on translations of ancient hymns and liturgies, especially of the Eastern Orthodox tradition, as well as cofounding the Society of Saint Margaret and the Anglican and Eastern Churches Association. He was responsible for translating and introducing a number of ancient and Eastern hymns and liturgies to the English-speaking world. He was also a contributor to the Christmas hymn “Good Christian Men, Rejoice,” as well as the Boxing Day carol of “Good King Wenceslas.” His most popular historical works include History of the Holy Eastern Church and History of the so-called Jansenist Church of Holland. He is commemorated by both the Anglican churches (August 7) and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (July 1).
