This chapter provides an account of the pulpit at Paul’s Cross and the arrangements for having the sermons delivered there. It demonstrates how current assumptions about the institutional stability of this sermon series are mistaken. The physical space occupied by preacher and hearers, the process for appointing preachers, and the arrangements made for paying and accommodating them are explained, using newly discovered materials from the Corporation of London’s archives. The composition of the auditory is described as far as possible. The sum of these details provides us with a clearer sense of the changing reputation of Paul’s Cross as a sermon series from Elizabeth’s reign to the destruction of the pulpit, probably in 1634.

Keywords:   Corporation of London, auditory, appointment, old St. Paul’s Cathedral
