In the 13th century, heretics challenged the church's prerogative to interpret the Holy Scripture. Berthold von Regensburg was one of the most famous preachers at that time. His sermons were very popular, and he was considered the most successful preacher in the Franciscan Order in medieval Germany. In his Latin sermons, Berthold used a wide variety of literary strategies to discredit his opponents. In this work, Ariane Czerwon tries to identify the traditions and sources Berthold used for the type of heretic he described in his sermons.
