Summary Sermons are a useful barometer of a society and can tell us about many more aspects than the strictly spiritual. In this survey of preaching during the reign of Philip III (1598-1621) the subject has been approached from several different but complementary directions - historical, sociological, bibliographical, literary, and theological - in an attempt to assess the importance of sermons as the crystallization of preoccupations current in a period as complex as the Spanish Golden Age.
Contents The sermon as event -- The sermon in print : transmission, readership, and rhetorical structure -- The preacher in action -- Eloquence sacred and profane -- The preacher as moralist -- The preacher as theologian.
