A sermon on stones? : a note on Volmar's Daz Steinbuoch
AbstractThe author analyses the thirteenth century lapidary Da: steinbuoch by the cleric Volmar, and argues that its structure follows that of the sermon, as set out in medieval treatises on the ars pratdicandi, in that the argument put forward by this work (i.e. that stones have magic powers), is upheld by quoting from the Holy Scripture.
