Christian Morals is a work in prose written by the physician Sir Thomas Browne as advice for his eldest children. It was published posthumously in 1716. It is a companion piece to his earlier Religio Medici, and consists, as its title implies, of meditations upon Christian values and conduct. It was edited by Samuel Johnson in 1756; Johnson prefaced his edition with a biography of Browne and his latter prose imitated stylistic effects of Browne's vigorous prose-style.
