Collection Description

Biographical Note

No information was discovered about John and James Rich.

Scope and Content Note

The volume contains several handwritten sermons. The volume’s first page bears a pencilled note: “Probably sermons by John Rich and James Rich.” The only other clue we have to the identity of the author, or authors, is that the sermons are described as having been delivered in various cities in England. The handwriting is not consistent, thus lending credence to the hypothesis that the sermons were written by more than one person. Each sermon begins with the citation of a biblical verse, and most of the sermons are followed by notations indicating when and where the sermon was delivered. The majority of the sermons seem to have been delivered at more than one location.
