GEMMS: Gateway to Early Modern Manuscript Sermons
TitleSermons of the beginning of the 17th century
ShelfmarkMS. Rawl. E. 203
Creation Dateca. 1600 - 1649
RepositoryBodleian Library
Contents Note31 sermons by an unknown preacher from the first half of the seventeenth century.
Material FeaturesPaper, 213 leaves, 7 1/8 x 4 3/4 inches. Written from both ends of the volume. An untidy volume, difficult to read, crammed, smeared, pages torn and missing. These appear to be all in the same hand, suggesting a preacher’s collection. The hand slants on the page and doesn’t keep even lines. But most of the manuscript is in good condition and can be read once the reader has grown accustomed to the hand. A leaf and a half between f. 40 and f. 41 are cut away, leaving a half-leaf of text (not foliated).
