Reginald Heber (1783-1826), had for a long time been interested in the Church of England's overseas missions when he was appointed second Bishop of Calcutta in 1823. The diocese had been established only in 1814, and included India, Southern Africa and Australia; Heber's short episcopate involved much travelling around his scattered flock. His widow, Amelia published his Sermons and Narrative of a Journey through the Upper Provinces of India (also available in this series), before writing this two-volume biography, published in 1830 and also containing previously unpublished writings by Heber. Volume 1 deals with his early life, including a journey across Scandinavia and Russia. Volume 2 covers the Indian years in detail. Heber was unusually sympathetic towards the Indian people, and worked closely with other religious leaders. The appendices include unpublished poetry and letters, missionary documents, his unfinished History of the Cossaks, and tributes to Heber by others.
