Item description for The King Embodies the Word: Robert D'Anjou and the Politics of Preaching (Studies in the History of Christian Thought) by Darleen N. Pryds...
Robert d'Anjou was King of Naples from 1309-1343, and preached throughout his reign. As a lay preacher he adopted the oratorical form generally reserved for clerics in order to announce his piety and erudition, but most importantly, he preached in order to express and extend his royal office. This book studies the sermons that Robert preached at universities, diplomatic ceremonies, and royal visitations at religious houses, including his sojourn at the papal court. This work explores an important case study in the history of medieval lay preaching, it shows the flexibility of preaching as a form of political and personal oratory.
