Overview

This textbook presents 17 model sermons for the preaching of the crusades from the 13th and early-14th centuries. The majority of these texts have never been printed before: they are valuable sources for the content of crusade propaganda in the later middle ages, giving a rare insight into the way in which propaganda shaped the public's view of crusading during that period. Accompanying the Latin texts is an English translation which is aimed at making these sources accessible to a wider circle of students and scholars. The first part of the book consists of a study of these model sermons which focuses on their place in the pastoral reform movement of the 13th century, their specific character as models for the use of crusade propagandists, their internal structure, and the image of the crusade conveyed in the texts.
