John Donne’s Sermons

October 11, 2010

The CEMS website now hosts the website of the Oxford Edition of the Sermons of John Donne, which will provide freshly edited texts with full annotations.  This AHRC-funded project is based in the Oxford English Faculty, with Dr Peter McCullough as General Editor and Dr Sebastiaan Verweij as Research Associate. The website gives a breakdown of the volumes and will display texts of individual sermons. You can sample a fascinating manuscript in which Donne’s revisions show him navigating the sensitive terrain of praising James I at a time of acute political controversy.
