Abstract

The Sermones feriales et communes by Jacques de Vitry (c. 1160-1240) are a model sermon collection of twenty-five Latin sermons based on the first three chapters of Genesis. This article presents an edition of Sermons 10 and 11, which are based on Genesis 1. 21-22 and Genesis 1. 24 respectively; Sermon 10 can be found in MSS 47 and Sermon 11 appears in the current issue. These sermons demonstrate Jacques de Vitry's role as reformer in his use if animal imagery and bestiary inspired material as moral examples. A description of the Sermones feriales et communes manuscripts and editorial explanations are found in MSS 47, pp. 33-37.
