This article examines the function of the popular sermon as represented in the Andalusī maqāma collection of Abū l-Tāhir Muhammad ibn Yūsuf al-Tamīmī al-Saraqustī. The popular sermon's representation in the maqāma became a standard feature of the genre with imaqāmāt of Hamadhānī. Hamadhani's use of the popular sermon for ironic effect and subversion of doctrine superposed the imaqāma's secular fictionality on the realm of religious doctrine and oratory. The popular sermon's representation thereafter became a generic convention of the maqāma in the corpora of Harīrī and his Andalusī successor, Saraqustī. Two texts, a critique of popular preaching by Ibn al-Djawzī and Ibn Djubayr's account of his own attendance at Ibn al-Djawzī's sermons, provide the historicized context for Saraqustī's and his predecessor's literary representations of popular sermonizing. The article concludes that, instead of being the mere epigone and imitator of his Eastern counterparts, Saraqustī uses the popular sermon's representation to create a distinctively Andalusī literary ethos.
