Sermons are an invaluable source for our knowledge of religious history and sociology, anthropology, and the mental landscape of men and women in pre-modern Europe, of what they were taught and what they practiced. But how did an individual process the preached message from the pulpit? How exactly do written sermons duplicate the preached Word? Do they at all? In this book, edited by the Colby History Department's Larissa Taylor, those questions are looked at and new insights into preaching in Europe in the early modern period are discussed.
