Svensk medeltida predikan på S:t Olofsdagen

Borgehammar, Stephan LU (2014) p.51-62
Abstract
29 sermons for the celebration of the Norwegian St. Olof/Olaf (July 29) have been preserved in medieval manuscripts of Swedish provenance. 27 of these were composed by friars of Vadstena Abbey. The article discusses what they tell us about the Saint, what sources the preachers used, and which characteristics of the Saint they emphasize. Finally, the main contents of a sermon on St. Olaf by the Vadstena friar Johannes Borquardi are related by way of example.
