Description

Bishops and secular clergy are often studied more in their administrative and political roles than in their pastoral ones, yet pastoral and liturgical duties were the foremost responsibility of most secular clergy. Likewise, the field of sermon studies is skewed toward mendicant and monastic preaching, due to the greater survival of that body of evidence, yet much of the preaching and catechesis that Christianized medieval society was carried out by secular clergy. This session aims to re-center preaching among the duties of the secular clergy, and to re-center secular clergy among preachers. Evan A. Gatti
