The International Medieval Sermon Studies Society (IMSSS) promotes and fosters the study of medieval sermons and preaching in Latin and the vernacular languages within their social, literary, religious, intellectual, theological, catechetical, political and historical contexts.

The Society also promotes and fosters the study of various artes praedicandi, and theories of preaching derived from them, as well as material used by sermon writers (e.g., Florilegia, commentaries, etc.).

Remembering Phyllis Roberts

At the 2018 IMSSS Symposium in Bristol, Anne Thayer shared her reminiscences of the Society’s founding Secretary, Phyllis Roberts, who had passed away earlier in the year. Phyllis had been an outstanding scholar and an even more superlative colleague and mentor to sermonists young and old, and Anne spoke for all of us in expressing our collective affection and sense of loss. The symposium was dedicated to Phyllis’s memory.
