GEMMS: Gateway to Early Modern Manuscript Sermons
TitleSermons of Edward Sayers
ShelfmarkTCD MS 3543
Creation Dateca. 1686 - 1730
Contents NoteContains 14 sermons by Edward Sayers (d. 1730), Chancellor of the Diocese of Cloyne, with preaching dates. The preaching locations are mainly in County Cork, with places such as Bandon, Castlemagner, Clenor, and Doneraile appearing often. The preachings are generally recorded in chronological order. For many sermons, the last several preachings seem to be in Doneraile: the author identifies this as the place for some of them, but records only the date for others. After the manuscripts is “The names of ye books I willingly would have” covering one recto and verso. At the end of the volume, written in reverse, are some household accounts and a prayer. The TCD cataloguer says that the label pasted on the flyleaf contains information "of dubious accuracy".
Material Features190 x 115mm. Unfoliated and unpaginated. Bound in black calfskin and blind stamped. All of the sermons written in the same hand, clear, large. The pages are cropped very closely on the right, though not on the top or bottom.
