Sermons at Paul's Cross provides welcome attention to the political exercise of preaching in Reformation England. * Susan Wabuda, Renaissance Quarterly *
Under the leadership of Torrance Kirby, the distinguished editorial team of Paul Stanwood, Mary Morrissey, and John King, with contributing editors Cecilia Hatt, Mark Rankin, and Richard Rex, have done an outstanding job of bringing this selection of both famous and less well-known sermons vividly to life. Concise introductory essays preface the volume and each of the five regnal sections. Equally succinct essays precede each of the eighteen sermons, providing biographical information, historical, religious, and political contexts, and notes on textual and editorial conventions... Biblical and intermediary sources are identified, preachers terminology and hard words are glossed, textual variants recorded, and topical allusions explicated. The edition also contains an immensely useful bibliography of extant Pauls Cross sermons, and readers will be grateful for an index that lists themes as well as names. * Hugh Adlington, Reading Religion *
