Item Description...
Ranulph Higden, monk of St. Werburgh's Abbey and well-known author of the "Polychronicon" and other treatises, penned a concise and user-friendly Art of Preaching about 1346. His "Ars componendi sermones" follows a schematic common to many members of this genre and includes attributes desirable or necessary in the preacher, methods for piquing an audience's interest, the process of effective repetition, and suggestions for creating rhythmic patterns in prose. Its major focus, however, is the clear and comprehensive discussion of each thematic sermon part: the theme or scriptural text, its development in protheme and introduction, its division, subdivision, and embellishment. affinities to contemporary rhetorical texts, especially the "artes poeticae" and "dictaminis", and displays an analogous relationship with Ciceronian "dispositio" as developed in the "De Inventione" and "Rhetorica ad Herennium". A few of the many items of interest scattered throughout the text are Ranulph insistence that preaching be separate from university exercises and his comments about various subjects like direct entry into heaven post mortem, the scope of medieval optics, what and who compose the church, and the quadruple levels of scriptural exegesis.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Higden's Ars componendi  May 24, 2003
Higden's Ars componendi sermones, "The Art of Composing Sermons", gives
concise and usable rules for composing an effective sermon: how to organize,
explain, cite evidence, and win the audience's favor, among other topics.
The translation by Sally Wilson gives anyone interested in the Middle Ages
access to this important text. Margaret Jennings, who did the Latin edition
of the Ars, has written an introduction which discusses the entire genre of
preaching manuals, and her notes explain difficulties in Higden's text. The
book also includes a bibliography and index, plus a description of the Latin
manuscripts of Higden's original text. Highly recommended for students of
literature and rhetoric and of the Middle Ages.
