Caesarius of Arles, The Medieval Sermon, and Orthodoxy.
Amos, Thomas L.
Indiana Social Studies Quarterly, v35 n1 p11-20 Spr 1982
Discusses the role played by preaching in early medieval religious culture. The author describes how Caesarius of Arles instigated the use of short, vivid statements of Christian theology as sermon endings. The endings reinforced the orthodox image of Christ in the minds of the illiterate population and counteracted the influence of Arianism. (AM)
