Politics and the Paul's Cross Sermons, 1558–1642

The fate of the Paul’s Cross sermons after building work on the cathedral led to the closure of the outdoor pulpit in 1633/4 is described. The survival of the Paul’s Cross series, in sermons preached by prominent Presbyterians before the Lord Mayor in the cathedral on Sunday mornings throughout the 1640s and 1650s, is shown to be the final stage of a transition from ‘public’ to ‘civic’ preaching. The reputation of Paul’s Cross after the demolition of the pulpit is shown to owe most to John Strype’s 1720 edition of John Stow’s Survey of London.
