In an age when the printed book was still in its infancy, the pulpit was the mass medium. A vital part of religious life, sermons were the chief occasions on which the church attempted to bridge the gap between high theology and popular religious culture. The preaching event provided the opportunity for men and women to socialize, flirt, dispute with or mock the preacher and, in a more positive way, to heed the preacher's words and change their lives. Larissa Taylor has examined over 1600 sermons given by the leading lay preachers in France between 1460 and 1560, and examines the social context of preaching and the sermon while reconstructing popular attitudes towards original sin, free will, purgatory, the Devil, the sacraments, and the magical arts.

Previously published by Oxford University Press, 1992. Winner of the 1996 John Nicholas Brown Prize of the Medieval Academy of America.

About the Author:

Larissa Juliet Taylor is an associate professor of history at Colby College.

Review:

"A handy review of the standard literature on late-medieval preaching and sermon form...and an interesting description of the gradual progress of heresy."--American Historical Review

"With this admirable, carefully researched study of an important facet of the religious history of Early Modern France, Taylor advances Herve Martin's solid study of preaching by dealing with printed, not manuscript sermons, and by reaching forward to the year just before the outbreak of the
Wars of Religion"--Catholic Historical Review

"May well prove a seminal work."--Theological Studies

"An important acquisition for academic libraries because sermons have been nearly universally neglected as a resource for this period in French history, and the few studies that have been done are not in English."--Choice

"A greatly enlightening work that gives its readers a better appreciation of the feel of religion in France."--ADRIS Newsletter

"The result of considerable research, Soldiers of Christ tells an interesting story. Its original insights into the social history of preaching and preachers are often peppered with amusing anecdotes, served up in a vigorous prose style. From doctrine to social criticism, from the Virgin
Mary to prostitutes, the sermons represent a treasure chest of social vignettes and a mirror of late medieval French society. In short, I find this to be an outstanding piece of scholarship, written in a style that animates an important topic."--R. Po-chia Hsia, New York University

"This work is an important addition to the study of late medieval Catholicism, a topic less well explored than it ought to be."--The Historian

"Although this beautifully written book by Larissa Taylor...will be most welcomed by those interested in European history during the late Middle Ages and the Reformation era, it should also appeal to students of religious, social, and women's history as well as literary specialists interested
in the development of a French language and the sermon as a genre."--History: Review of New Books

"Soldiers of Christ makes a considerable impact, and its conclusions deserve to be widely discussed by late medieval and Reformation scholars."--Sixteenth Century Journal

"This book, the product of a decade of archival and bibliographic research, examines more than 1,600 French sermons transcribed and printed in the century after 1460. The result is an important contribution to the ongoing debate on the character of late medieval piety."--Sixteenth Century
Journal
