Cistercian Publications Suggests

Preaching was a much admired, much studied, and much practiced art by both abbots and secular clergy. This handbook designed for training future preachers gives moderns an insight into the technique and the content of those twelfth-century sermons.

Alan's handbook came at a time when the making of sermons was becoming a more precise art. After analyzing what preaching is, who should preach and to whom, why, when, and where, Alan offers a set of fascinating chapters that suggest texts and sermon materials . . .
