Abstract

Reviews Andersson, Roger, ed., Constructing the Medieval Sermon (Sermo, 6), Turnhout, Brepols, 2008; hardback; pp. xiv, 338; 5 b/w illustrations, 4 b/w tables; R.R.P. 60.00; ISBN 9782503525891. I have always had an unbounded admiration for those with the scholarly ability and perseverance to tease out the long but changing practices of sermon-making in the Middle Ages. I often regret, however, that many of those who work on later Reformation sermon-making are not able to sufficiently acknowledge the thousand years of varying traditions that lay behind it. How different are the Calvinist sermons from those of Anthony of Padua (considered here by Riccardo Quinto) when he speaks of the elect, and their duty to prepare themselves for his reception in accordance with the word of Scripture?
