Before the advent of printing, the preaching of the friars was the mass medium of the middle ages. In this edition of marriage sermons, David D'Avray reveals what famous preachers had to say about marriage. His study teases out the close connection between marriage symbolism and social, cultural, and legal realities in the thirteenth century.
