Religio Laici, Or a Layman's Faith


Religio Laici, Or A Layman's Faith (1682) is a poem by John Dryden, published as a premise to his subsequent The Hind and the Panther (1687), a final outcome of his conversion to Roman Catholicism.[1]

The poet argues for the credibility of the Christian religion and against Deism, and (perhaps less convincingly) for the Anglican Church against that of Rome.[2]
