Edition of a fifteenth-century personal compilation of temporale sermons
This edition presents the full text of a personal collection of  temporale Middle-English sermons, compiled by a parish priest for his own use (preserved in Cambridge University Library MS Cg.6.16). It also includes the notes and fragments of sermons or exempla  found at the beginning of the manuscript with a purpose of giving insight into the way a parish priest would compile materials. This manuscript has attracted attention because it perserves versions of these sermons' early stages. The current edition is therefore complementary to editions of later versions of the same sermons.  The introduction provides a discussion of these sermons' textual history and the circumstances in which they were possibly preached. Explanatory notes, a glossary, and indexes complete the edition.
Lecturer, English Studies Department, University of Orléans. Specialist of British Civilisation and Middle-English sermons.
