Abstract: Although George Herbert recently turned 400, only during the past decade has he really come out in society. Herbert has of course long been a major figure for serious scholarly study, and the subject of many important monographs treating his religion and art from the 1950s on. However, it was not until the 1990s that literary critics began to deal much with Herbert in a fuller political and social setting, to connect his heavenly art with its earthly contexts of court, Parliament, city, country, village, parish, and family.
