How to order?
This volume makes available for the first time in English over forty Victorine sermons arranged according the Liturgical year and fully introduced and annotated, and situated in the development of the Latin sermon.

The Canons Regular who followed the Rule of St Augustine at St Victor of Paris in the twelfth century bequeathed to subsequent generations a legacy of over 200 carefully crafted sermons for the major feasts of their liturgical year. The sermons that Maurice de Sully, bishop of Paris (1160-1196) prepared in Latin and Old French for parish priests drew on the expertise of Richard of St Victor. In this volume are sermons by Hugh, Achard, Richard, Walter, and Godfrey of St Victor, Maurice de Sully, and Absalom of Springiersbach, arranged in liturgical order. Most of these sermon appear in English for the first time.

Hugh Feiss, OSB, a monk of the Monastery of the Ascension (Jerome, ID) is the managing editor of the series Victorine Texts in Translation. He is editor of volume two, On Love, and the forthcoming volume ten on the sacraments. He was co-editor of A Companion to the Abbey Saint Victor in Paris (2017). His other publications include Achard of St Victor, Works (2001) and Peter of Celle, Selected Works (1987).
