This chapter examines the sermons of Catholic preachers in the fifteenth, sixteenth, and seventeenth centuries. Among these are sermons by Paul Wann (1420/25–89), who left in manuscript form a series of Latin Holy Week sermons that he preached in 1460 in the cathedral in Passau; Johannes Wild (1497–1554), a Franciscan who riveted audiences to their places over a twenty-six-year period in the diocese of Mainz—he was Domprediger from 1540 until his death—and saw prodigious quantities of postils to press; Heinrich Helm (d. ca. 1560), an Observant Franciscan, who published sparsely and about whom far less is known; and Andreas Brunner (1589–1650), a native of Tirol who served as professor of moral theology and preacher in Dillingen, and was then called to Munich to work on a history of Bavaria.
