Abstract

This session will focus on some important issues in sermon studies scholarship: the relationship between secular and monastic cultures; the political context of medieval preaching; and preaching and reformation. The three papers cover between them a wide geographical and political range, and together they will provide a detailed insight into three very particular moments in the history of preaching.
