"Insgesamt stellt die Edition der Predigtsammlung aus Worcester zweifellos einen Gewinn für die Erforschung mittelalterlicher Predigten dar. Schließlich erweitert sie die Grundlage für die Diskussion offener Fragen, die sich sowohl hinsichtlich der in Worcester Ms. Q. 18 überlieferten Predigttexte als auch mit Blick auf das Predigtwesen des 14. Jahrhunderts insgesamt ergeben."

Everyday Sermons from Worcester Cathedral Priory

An Early-Fourteenth-Century Collection in Latin

De onderstaande tekst is niet beschikbaar in het Nederlands en wordt in het Engels weergegeven.
Edited and with commentary by Joan Greatrex, this book makes available for the first time in printed form the sermon manuscript, MS Q. 18, which survives in its original home in the medieval cathedral library at Worcester. At first glance this small, untidy quarto-size manuscript appears to be merely an unremarkable collection of early fourteenth-century Latin sermons. However, unlike other surviving sermon manuscripts from cathedral priories and major Benedictine abbeys, which had sermons of notable figures like Augustine, Gregory the Great, and Bernard of Clairvaux, the Worcester MS Q. 18 is by contrast a home-grown production consisting only of homilies prepared by mostly anonymous members of the Worcester monastic community. And they are a rare, if not unique, example of working copies of sermons, with the Latin text reworked, altered, and corrected by a number of monks, giving us a unique insight into the mind and the mentality of a medieval monastic community.
