Abstract:

In this major study of Anglo-Saxon religious texts--sermons, homilies, and saints' lives written in Old English--Clare A. Lees reveals how the invention of preaching transformed the early medieval church, and thus the culture of medieval England. By placing Anglo-Saxon prose within a social matrix, her work offers a new way of seeing medieval literature through the lens of culture. By concentrating on the theoretically problematic areas of history, religious belief, and aesthetics--the book contributes to debates about the evolving meaning of culture.
