“Aiming to present the genre in its widest range, O’Mara and Paul reviewed an impressive number of texts collected from mainly British libraries and a few North American ones, to present an amply indexed tool which no doubt will become indispensable to all students of Middle English preaching material. In other words, a dream come true.” (L. Iseppi, in: The Medieval Review, 09.03.19)

“This is a rich study of the diversity of what constitutes the varied method of medieval sermon composition. [...] For the expert this is a goldmine in the explication of the complexities of sermon construction in the Middle Ages.”

This book explores different types of sources to understand the ways in which they contributed to making ethnic and religious communities meaningful: historiography and hagiography, biblical exegesis and works of theology, sermons and letters. Thus, it sets out to widen the horizon of current debates on ethnicity and identity.

xvi + 172 p., 152 x 229 mm, 2013, ASMAR 37, HB, ISBN 978-2-503-54665-0, € 60 Available

The author examines the rhetorical strategies John Trevisa used to establish his authority and justify his translation of Ranulf Higden’s Latin Polychronicon into English. In addition to shedding new light on Trevisa’s remarkable translation, this book will cause scholars of medieval literature, history, and theology to think differently about the impact of translation on late-medieval culture.

“(…) un ouvrage de grande qualité que nous livrent les éditeurs, qui permet en outre au lecteur d’accéder directement à la pensée d’Étienne Langton, grâce aux longues citations de ses textes systématiquement données en notes par les contributeurs.” (François Delmas-Goyon, dans: Le Moyen Âge, 117, 2011, p. 720)

“It is a valuable contribution to scholarship on medieval and early modern preaching and ­ makes profitable use of Weberian theory. It will be of interest to students and researchers of sermon studies, the history of performance, theatre and rhetoric, and medieval religious cultures.” ( Jonathan Adams, in: Medieval Sermon Studies, Vol. 56, 2012, p. 69)

“Hildegard of Bingen and her Gospel Homilies is an erudite work, but also engaging reading. It brings new knowledge on Hilde­ gard and her works as well as on the conditions of female religious learning in the twelfth century. It is a most welcome addition to the existing literature on Hildegard of Bingen and her time.” (B. Istoft, in: Journal of Religion in Europe, vol. 4, 2011, p. 504-506)

This book offers the reader a textual comparison of the 14th-century French Second Lucidaire and the late Middle English translation Lucydarye.

De Middelnederlandse vertaling van de ‘Legenda aurea’ door Petrus Naghel, uitgegeven naar handschrift Brussel, Koninklijke Bibliotheek, 15140. Deel II 621 p., 156 x 234 mm, 2012, 978-2-503-54502-8, HB, ISBN 978-2-503-54272-0, € 120 Available

This huge hagiographic collection, organised per circulum anni, can be considered as a compendium of the medieval religious worldview: it offers insights into the (deuterocanonic) tradition of the New Testament, the lives and deaths of the most important saints, the history of the church of Rome, and it can be read as a catechism in narrative form. But the Legenda aurea is also a treasure-trove of stories, motifs and themes splendidly reflecting medieval mentality in its entirety.
