John Mason Neale (1818–1866)
 
Neale, John Mason. A notable English church historian and poet; born in London, Jan. 24, 1818; died at East Grinstead, Aug. 6, 1866. He was an extreme High-Churchman; founded a sisterhood, was inhibited from church ministrations for fourteen years, and once burned in effigy. His translations of Latin and Greek hymns are among the finest religious lyrics in the language; the most famous are ‘Art Thou Weary’ and ‘Jerusalem the Golden.’ His best-known books are: ‘History of the Holy Eastern Church’; ‘Mediæval Hymns’; ‘Hymns of the Eastern Church’; and ‘History of the So-called Jansenist Church of Holland.’
