This book brings together a wide range of late Middle English sermons distinctively "Lollard" in their intense preoccupation with the role of the preacher and the exposition of the scriptures. The work encompasses sixteen gospel sermons, an optional expansion, and the Sermon of Dead Men--a funeral sermon with a lengthy discourse on the Four Last Things (Death, Judgement, the Pains of Hell, and the Joys of Heaven)--in addition to introductory sections, a glossary, notes, and a two-part Index of Scriptural Texts, one sermon-by-sermon, the other alphabetical.

'The area of medieval sermon studies has been the site of much activity in recent years and this volume is a welcome addition the the growing collection of re-edited or heretofore unedited texts. ..., this volume makes possible further comparison of this group of Lollard sermons with those in the long English cycle.' Martha H. Fleming, Church History 'an excellent scholarly edition of Middle English Lollard sermons' Carolyne Larrington, St John's College, Oxford. Theological Book Review 'a welcome edition ... Two hundred and forty pages of admirably edited text are sandwiched between 150 pages of generous critical apparatus.' Margaret Aston, Journal of Ecclesiastical History 'an excellent edition: it offers a substantial body of hitherto unprinted texts' The Review of English Studies 'We must ... be grateful for the appearance in print for the first time of texts that contain much interesting material for the study of Middle English sermons.' A.S.G. Edwards, University of Victoria, Speculum, January 1992
