GEMMS: Gateway to Early Modern Manuscript Sermons
Title[18th century sermons]
Creation Dateca. 1700 - 1834
Contents NoteVarious sermons, both complete and fragmentary, in a number of hands. The majority are undated, but assumed to date from the 18th century on palaeographic grounds. There are no preachers or places of preaching specified, and the hands do not suggest that they were preached by John Headlam, although some may have been. There are two dated sermons too late for the scope of GEMMS: 1) Sermon on 1 John 2:1, 11 ff. 1809-1834; 2) Sermon on unknown text, 1755 - 1794.
Material Features8 paper booklets of various sizes, in a variety of hands.
