This is a deluxe copy in an early binding of a very important collection of fifty-one sermons, most likely preached at the University of Paris, or by preachers associated with the University, in the thirteenth century. Whereas half the sermons are known from other manuscripts, another half are unrecorded sermons from the same milieu. They thus represent a very important addition to our corpus of thirteenth-century sermons. Thirteenth-century sermon manuscripts are quite uncommon on the market with the Schoenberg Database recording only five.

Provenance

1. The style of decoration, parchment, and layout suggest that this manuscript was copied in Paris around 1300 in the context of the professional booktrade. This is confirmed by its contents, which include numerous sermons identified in manuscripts containing sermons preached at the University of Paris in the thirteenth century. It was copied by a number of scribes, using similar skilled gothic bookhands; the hand of the first scribe in particular is more rounded than one might expect, suggesting that he may have been a scribe from outside Paris, not an unusual occurrence. The relatively deluxe make-up is quite unusual for sermon manuscripts. Likely original owners could be either a University Master or even a cleric trained in Paris and working elsewhere, presumably someone of some wealth and position in the Church.

Two texts added to the manuscript in a cursive gothic script, probably in the later fourteenth or fifteenth century; the first text may be an unidentified commentary on Genesis; the second text, an unidentified sermon.

This is an important collection of thirteenth-century sermons, most likely consisting of sermons preached at the University of Paris, or by university masters, between c. 1230 and 1300, or a little later, when the manuscript was copied. The revival of medieval preaching, dating from the later years of the twelfth century, was one of the most important features of the history of the Church in the thirteenth century. This is reflected both in a notable increase in the number of sermons that are preserved in manuscripts, and in a change in the form of the sermon. The sermons included in this manuscript are examples of the new “modern” or “school” sermons (also called “university” and “scholastic” sermons). In contrast to earlier medieval sermons, the new modern sermons begin with a theme (thema), usually a verse from Scripture, which becomes not only the focus of the content of the sermon, but also the source of its structure. The structure of the sermon is typically announced at the beginning, and each part, or division, is supported by citations from scripture. Around 1230, preachers begin to introduce their sermons with a “protheme,” essentially a very brief introductory sermon, often invoking divine aid. Many of the sermons in this collection include a protheme.

Preaching was an integral part of the life of the thirteenth-century University. Masters in theology were expected to preach both to university audiences on major feast days and to lay audiences. The sermons in this manuscript are clearly from this milieu. The manuscript includes fifty-one sermons. Twenty-six of these are found in Schneyer’s Repertorium der lateinichen Sermones des Mittelalters für die Zeit von 1150-1350. Sixteen of the sermons listed in Schneyer are also found in other manuscripts of collections of sermons from the University of Paris: Rouen, Bibliothèque municipale MS A.560, includes twelve of the same sermons, and some of the same sermons can also be found in Laon, Bib. mun. MS 289, Poitiers, Bib. mun., MS 99, and Troyes, Bib. mun. MS 1964. The authors of the few sermons that can be attributed by name were Parisian theologians, or studied in Paris, including two sermons by St. Bonaventure, O.F.M. (d. 1274), as well as sermons by Thomas de Lisle, O.P. (d. 1322), Jacobus de Losanne, O.P. (d. 1322), Bartholomaeus de Bononia, O.F.M. (d. 1294), Aegidius de Valle Scholarum (d. 1267/8), Eberhard de Valle Scholarum (d. 1272), and Guillaume de Malliaco, O.P. (d. c.1300). Alongside sermons that were probably preached to a university, clerical audience, the manuscript also includes sermons that were preached to the laity, and begin with references to sayings in French (“vulgariter dicitur”). The twenty-five sermons included in this manuscript that are not included in Schneyer are most likely unrecorded sermons from thirteenth-century Paris, associated with the University. They represent an important addition to our corpus of thirteenth-century sermons, and they thus deserve careful study.

Thirteenth-century sermon manuscripts are very uncommon on the market. For example, the Schoenberg Database lists only five; this manuscript represents a rare opportunity to acquire a very important text.

Illumination

The first sermon in the manuscript, now f. 8, begins with a formal illuminated initial; the three-line initial is pink, with white highlights, on a blue and gold ground, infilled with realistic leaves on gold, extending into a red, blue and gold frame, which continues into the top, bottom and partly into the outer margins; the corners of the frame are deeply lobed; orange, gold, and pale violet tri-lobe leaves branch from the frame. The quality of the initial points to a professional shop in Paris, c. 1300; for book production at this time in Paris, see Joan Diamond Udovitch. “Manufacture and Market in Parisian Book Illumination around 1300,” Europäische Kunst um 1300, eds. E. Schmidt and E. Liskar, Akten des XXV. Iternationaler Kongress für Kunstgeschichte 6, Vienna, 1986, pp. 101-110. A similar, if more elaborate initial, is found in Paris, BnF, MS lat. 8504, dated 1313-1314, illustrated in Richard H. and Mary A. Rouse. Manuscripts and their Makers: Commercial Book Producers in Medieval Paris 1200-1500, Turnhout, Belgium, vol. 2, pl. 71.
