Cambridge Studies in Medieval Literature #53: Latin Sermon Collections from Later Medieval England Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Almost all sermons were written in Latin until the Reformation. This scholarly study describes and analyzes such collections of Latin sermons from the golden age of medieval preaching in England--the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries. Basing his studies on the extant manuscripts, Siegfried Wenzel analyzes their sermons and occasions. He covers many of the broader late medieval debates on preaching, as well as the attitudes of orthodox preachers to Lollardy.

Synopsis:

Until the Reformation, almost all sermons were written down in Latin. Based on the extant manuscripts, this is the first systematic description and analysis of such collections of Latin sermons from the golden age of medieval preaching in England, the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries.

Synopsis:

This study analyses late medieval collections of Latin sermons and includes inventories of the surviving sources.
