Sermo (SERMO 7) A Mendicant Sermon Collection from Composition to Reception The 'Novum opus dominicale' of John Waldeby, OESA Y. Akae XVI+360 p., 7 b/w ill., 3 b/w tables, 1 b/w line art, 156 x 234 mm, 2015 ISBN: 978-2-503-53034-5 Languages: English, Latin, Middle English Hardback The publication is available. Retail price: EUR 90,00 A detailed investigation of a single medieval sermon collection: how, where, why, and for whom it was composed and how it was designed to be used. By setting this collection in its specific context, the study sheds new light on the whole system of preaching support which made the mendicant orders such effective communicators in the later Middle Ages. This study analyzes in detail the Novum opus dominicale of John Waldeby, a member of the convent of the Augustinian friars in York. This unedited collection of some sixty sermons for Sundays and major feasts is extant in two manuscripts in the Bodleian Library (Oxford), MSS Laud misc. 77 and Bodley 687. The present study places the work and the preacher within the wider context of mendicant preaching as mass communication in the Middle Ages. In doing so, it focuses on the educational environment which encompasses conventual education and preaching to the laity, and on the library in which this model sermon collection was compiled and used, identifying the role and meticulous design of the mendicant library collection. Through a detailed examination of sermon form in conjunction with Robert of Basevorn's Forma praedicandi, it tries to disentangle the intricate considerations involved in the processes of sermon composition and reveals the strategies of interpretation and communication in the use of exempla and imagery in preaching. It investigates the careful organization of Waldeby's work as a cycle of sermons for an entire year. In this way, it makes possible a deeper understanding of a wide range of complex issues from composition to reception through the prism of this important fourteenth-century sermon collection.
