This chapter discusses Summa de arte praedicandi (Summa of the Art of Preaching), written by Thomas of Chobham (sometimes called Thomas of Salisbury) around 1220. Summa de arte praedicandi, one of the first examples of the new genre of ars praedicandi, demonstrates how to conceive the production of sermons in both theological and literary terms. Its treatment of allegory is particularly indebted to the Allegoriae super tabernaculum Moysi of Peter of Poitiers. Summa de arte praedicandi also deals with the rhetoric of Scripture, in which it finds grammatical figures and tropes.

Keywords:   ars praedicandi, sermons, Summa de arte praedicandi, Thomas of Chobham, allegory, Allegoriae super tabernaculum Moysi, rhetoric, Scripture, figures, tropes
