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 appears in the current issue and Sermon 11 will be found in MSS 48. These sermons demonstrate Jacques de Vitry's role as riformer in his use of animal imagery and bestiary inspired material as moral examples.
