Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Paul's Cross and the Culture of Persuasion in England, 1520-1640 contains a list of contents, illustrations, abbreviations and acronyms, a list of contributors, and acknowledgements. The book discusses that the open-air pulpit in the precincts of St. Paul's Cathedral known as 'Paul's Cross' can be reckoned among the most influential of all public venues in early-modern England. In a world where sermons generally counted among the conventional means of adult education, as vital instruments of popular moral and social guidance, not to mention political control, Paul's Cross stands out as London's pulpit of pulpits; indeed it lays claim to being the 'public pulpit' of the entire realm, and was arguably as much a stage as a preaching station.

Keywords: England; open-air pulpit; St. Paul's Cathedral
