Excerpt from Mediæval Preachers and Mediæval Preaching: A Series of Extracts, Translated From the Sermons of the Middle Ages, Chronologically Arranged; With Notes and an Introduction

S. Victor, and others, though we certainly have a few sermons of their writing, yet in that particular species of composition claimed no such eminent place as to entitle them to stand in a selection of such narrow limits. Where it was possible, I have chosen British rather than foreign writers; hence the name of Adam Scotus, who would otherwise hardly have appeared the volume. Some apology is perhaps necessary for the last author who will be found in these pages, Antonio Vieyra, and who certainly did not live in me dizeval times. But the thoroughly mediaeval character of many of his sermons, gives him, perhaps, as good a claim to be called the last preacher of the Middle Ages, as S. Bernard has to the title of the last of the Fathers.
