Chapter Summary

Guido of Monte Rochens Manipulus Curatorum was a late medieval bestseller in the area of pastoral literature. The handbook straightforwardly teaches its readers how to administer the seven sacraments and what to offer in terms of basic catechesis. Part I of the Manipulus takes up the sacraments in general and each sacrament in turn, save confession. Confession was important enough and complex enough to stand alone as Part II, the longest of the major divisions. Part III of the Manipulus concerns basic Christian teaching. In addition to these catechetical offerings, Guido also provides support for preaching to the laity that might be done by the user of his handbook in the form of embedded sermons, sermon outlines, and other preachable materials and oratorical techniques throughout his text. Preaching by those with cure of souls was a major goal of the late medieval Church, and one that was increasingly realized.
