Abstract

Contrary to older opinions regarding the fifteenth century as the great divide between the Middle Ages and the Renaissance/Reformation, sixteenth-century sermon literature demonstrates through its great preference for exempla the extensive continuity of older traditions. This article illustrates, using Johannes Pauli's collection of exempla, Schimpf und Ernst (1521) as a representative example, to what extent he and other clerical authors were familiar with a large portion of medieval and early-modern literature which they easily integrated into their own texts and used them for their moral-didactic purposes.
