9781108010078: Preaching in Medieval England: An Introduction to Sermon Manuscripts of the Period c.1350-1450 (Cambridge Library Collection - Medieval History)

First published in 1926, G. R. Owst's Preaching in Medieval England has remained a seminal work on the topic of English sermons of the period 1350-1450. In studying a largely neglected but important aspect of the medieval religious experience, the author adds considerably to our understanding of the pre-Reformation church. The book is in three parts - the preachers, the circumstances of the preaching and reception, and the sermons themselves. In the first section Owst discusses the different classes of preacher, the secular clergy, monks and particularly the wandering friars, famous for their preaching. In the second part he studies the experience of sermons, how, where and when they were delivered, and to whom. The examination of the sermons covers not only their content and language, but also the surviving manuals on preaching and eloquence, and advice to preachers. This wide ranging and scholarly book remains a crucial work on medieval preaching.

Book Description:

This 1926 work examines a neglected subject in studies of both the medieval church and literature. G. R. Owst discusses the role of sermons in fourteenth- and fifteenth-century England from the perspective of both preacher and different categories of audience. He also discusses the growing use of vernacular languages.
