Description/Abstract

The article examines the use of later twelfth-century preaching techniques, 'distinctiones' and 'divisiones', in some of the sermons of the Middle English sermon-collections known as the 'Trinity Homilies' and 'Lambeth Homilies', in particular five sermons shared by both collections, and argues that their use suggests a closer connection with new developments in preaching in the Paris schools than has previously been assumed.
