The Art of Preaching

Based on his wide-ranging knowledge of late-medieval Latin sermons from England as well as his editorial experience with medieval Latin texts, Siegfried Wenzel offers critical editions of five instruction manuals on the "art of preaching" dating from 1230 to the fifteenth century. Four of the texts are edited and translated for the first time; the fifth is re-edited from all extant manuscripts. Each of the five sermons is accompanied by a facing-page translation into English. The book aims to stimulate interest and new research in a field that still awaits closer analysis of the relationships among existing treatises and of their historical development.

Preachers, Poets, and the Early English Lyric

The Middle English lyric is intimately related to late medieval preaching, not only because many lyrical poems have been preserved in sermon manuscripts, but also because preaching furnished a unique opportunity to create and utilize poems. Preachers, Poets, and the Early English Lyric explores this relationship in detail. Originally published in 1986.

Latin Sermon Collections from Later Medieval England

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.

Seventeen previously published papers, here updated and revised, and one hitherto unpublished esssay explore the medieval notion of the Seven Deadly Sins and several aspects of medieval sermons. These scholarly studies examine how the commonplace of seven "chief vices" was analyzed in scholastic theology and used in preaching and in hearing confession. The influence of one major Summa de vitiis on other works of its kind is investigated in some detail. In the field of medieval preaching, the author examines sermon collections, academic speech acts, sermons for saints, and preachers' use of proverbs in French. Several works by English Dominican authors, particularly Fishacre, Bromyard, Holcot, and an ars praedicandi, are brought to light. The essays are based on fresh investigation of medieval manuscripts and accompanied by critical editions of the relevant texts.

The French Dominican William Peraldus or Guillaume Peyraut (died c. 1275), well known for his long summae on the vices and virtues, also produced several cycles of sermons, of which two deal with the Epistle and the Gospel readings for the Sundays of the Church year. This study analyzes the latter in some detail and argues that, rather than collecting sermons he had preached earlier, Peraldus wrote these sermons systematically for the use of other preachers. The Epistle sermons for the first Sunday in Advent and the Gospel sermons for the third Sunday in Advent are presented in their original Latin text together with an English translation in order to demonstrate how Peraldus dealt with the ...
