Everyday Sermons from Worcester Cathedral Priory: An Early-Fourteenth-Century Collection in Latin
edited by Joan Greatrex
Arc Humanities Press, 2019
Cloth: 978-1-64189-348-0

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, their importance lies in the fact that they appear to be a rare, if not unique, example of working copies of sermons, providing us with a glimpse into daily life in a medieval monastic community.
