British sermons on national events

Wolffe, John (2010). British sermons on national events. In: Ellison, Robert H. ed. A New History of the Sermon: The Nineteenth Century, Volume 5. Leiden: Brill, pp. 181–206.



This chapter is focused on discrete occurrences that gave rise to sermons on a single day, or within a short, defined period of time. The events under consideration here were not political in themselves, although some had obvious political ramifications, but were either lifecycle events concerning the royal family, the deaths of other national figures, or natural disasters and military conflicts.
