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. 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. This 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. This volume also includes explanatory notes and a glossary.
Lecturer, English Studies Department, University of Orléans. Specialist of British Civilisation and Middle-English sermons.
