Edward HOMER 1581?-1614

Biographical Note

Of Worcestershire. BA St John's College, Oxford 1602, MA 1606.


Homer's probate inventory (transcribed and edited as PLRE 160) lists ca.60 books, typical of the small library of a young academic of the time. The PLRE editors note the high proportion of theological material (about two thirds) and standard textbooks, in Latin and English.
