Far from being the “dark ages” once disparaged by the rationalists of the Enlightenment, modern scholarship has revealed the Middle Ages as a period of profound intellectual, artistic, and spiritual vitality. The culture of the West revolved around Christianity, and the intellectual life culminated not in abstract theology, but in the sermon. It was in pursuit of better preaching that the scholars of the Middle Ages organized the Bible by chapter and verse, why they compiled countless lexicons and concordances, why they wrote their summae and their commentaries, and ultimately why they built the university system. The preaching of the Middle Ages was both exegetical and pastoral. Its purpose was to bring the Word of God to life and through it to convert the people. They believed that preaching was a grace and that the Holy Spirit spoke through the preacher, interpreting Scripture. Preaching and Spirituality were therefore intimately connected.

The Medieval Preaching and Spirituality Collection (34 vols.) offers a wide of range of important texts from the fourth to the fifteenth centuries. It includes sermons from the most acclaimed preachers of the period as well as resources commonly used in their composition. It also includes works of a more spiritual nature, allowing one to place the sermons within their context. With the Medieval Preaching and Spirituality Collection (34 vols.), the spiritual richness of the Middle Ages becomes available for contemporary Scripture study.

With the Logos edition all Scripture passages in the Medieval Preaching and Spirituality Collection (34 vols.) are tagged and appear on mouse-over.

    This really, really, really needs to include Lombard's Sentences-- and you need to make Breviloquium available separately.

    We in the more enlightened 21st century tend to view with apprehension anything coming out of the medieval period, even to the point of denying that Christian theological development and even Christian philosophy was alive and well during these so-called dark times. However, to do so would be to miss the great wealth of spirituality and deep theological insight produced by Hugh of St. Victor, St. John the Damascene, and Pope Gregory the Great. What is also essential about these authors and their works — these preachers and their sermons — is the value of learning how the Roman Catholic Church developed such elements as the papacy, such seedbeds as free will and determination, and how love was treated. The 34 volume set of The Medieval Preaching and Spirituality Collection beckons us to consider the great treasure trove that is medieval theological tradition.
