Sermones ‘Dormi secure' de tempore.


Analysis of Content

a1r [Title-page.] ‘Sermones Dormi secure de tempore.’

a2r [Johannes de Werdena]: Sermones ‘Dormi secure' de tempore. ‘Dominica prima aduentus. Sermo primus.’ Incipit: ‘Sermones dominicales cum expositionibus euangeliorum per annum satis notabiles et vtiles omnibus sacerdotibus pastoribus et capellanis qui alio nomine Dormi secure vel dormi sine cura sunt nuncupati eo quod absque magno studio faciliter possint incorporari et populo predicari incipiunt feliciter. “[D]icite filie Sion ecce rex tuus venit tibi mansuetus etcetera.” Matthei .xxi. [Mt 21,5.] Verba ista scripta sunt a Zacharia . . . Quod nobis ille concedat qui sine fine viuit et regnat.’ See J‑203; without the extended explicit, but sharing the words ‘alio nomine' in the incipit with the two preceding editions.

t4v ‘Incipit tabula sermonum dormi secure secundum alphabeti ordinem.’ ‘[A]bstinentes et bene ieiunantes mercedem habebunt apud deum . . .’


Imprint: Basel: [Printer of Meffret, ‘Sermones' (Berthold Ruppel)], 28 June 1489. 4°.

Remarks: The imprint information is provided in the colophon to Ruppel's Sermones de sanctis, not included in the Bodleian copy.


Collation: a–g H h–r8 s t6 (not as BMC).

Remarks: In the BMC copy gathering H, containing shorter leaves of ‘thick, yellower, unmarked paper' is misbound as part of the Sermones de sanctis, its correct position being as here in Sermones de tempore; in the Bodleian copy gathering k is also of this paper stock. 156 leaves (as H).
