    More Information:

    Ingelo, Nathaniel (1620/21-1683), author, was born at Bristol. "Ingelo's major literary project was Bentivolio and Urania, published in two installments (1660, 1664), a best-selling work of religious and moral instruction in the form of a fictional narrative. The work is dedicated to William Brereton, the eldest son of the civil war general. Bentivolio and Urania was conceived in terms of the Platonic doctrine of the heterogeneity of the soul set out in Henry More's long poem Psychozoia (1641). Rochester mocked the platitudes of Ingelo's satire, which urges a return to the traditional humanist marriage of learning and piety, but this is an indication of its popularity. There were four editions between 1660 and 1682."
