Esaias Tegnér's Sermons and Homilies - A Scientific Edition

Esaias Tegnér was not only a poet, a professor of Greek and a politician, but also a priest and, later on, the bishop of the episcopate of Växjö. The aim of the project is to bring out an edition of all Esaias Tegnér's sermons and homilies with a scholarly commentary included. It is also planned that the project will result in a monograph/volume XX?, which from a rhetorical, stylistic, theological and historico-cultural perspective discusses the different types of speeches Tegnér made at ordinations, visitations and other services. The work is being done at the request of Tegnérsamfundet ("The Tegnér Society") within the framework of its edition of Tegnér's complete works. The society has previously edited and published Tegnérs letters, poems and secular speeches. The only thing missing to complete the edition are the sermons and homilies.
