50. Sermons of St. Maximus of Turin

Maximus' sermons are models of a good, popular homiletic style that must have been widespread. Short, characterized by a love of imagery, and with passages of great beauty, they are direct and easy to understand, and in them Maximus manifests his engagement with his rural, superstitious and devout congregation. Maximus' ministry in Turin dates to the years between c. 390 and 408/423.
