  • Abstract: The paper focuses on a methodology to discover embedded theatrical elements in sermons. In Whereas the artes praedicandi addressed potential confusion between preaching and theatre –during the narration of exempla, and in the preacher’s gestures– , in Bernardino da Siena’s sermons we notice the importance of elements which make the discourse similar to a theatrical performance. Our methodology proposes a way to reconstruct the sermon’s performance and demonstrates preachers’ efforts, competing with actors, in gaining public’s attention.
