    In time for Holy Week and this era of the epidemic, the topic of fasting possesses a heightened relevance. Thomas Becon, chaplain to Thomas Cranmer Archbishop of Canterbury, in 1551 has written a masterpiece on the subject, entitled "A Fruitful Treatise of Fasting" (1551).

    We have the full text, with accessible spelling but as close to the original in design and arrangement as possible. See here:
