Creating Augustine

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses the textual traditions of the Sermones ad fratres in eremo, two of the earliest collections of which are found in Jordan of Quedlinburg’s Collectanea Sancti Augustini and in the Collectorium Sermonum Sancti Augustini of the mid-fourteenth century Chancellor of Paris, Robert de Bardis. While the original forger may never be discovered, the collections of these sermons of Jordan and de Bardis give strong evidence of an original collection of 22 or 23 sermons, which later grew to include 76 sermons, as printed in the PL. These sermons, in part, give textual evidence of the priority of the Hermits in their controversy with the Canons over Augustine’s first monastic order, and became a subject of debate throughout the later Middle Ages and beyond.
