Siegfried Wenzel -- Homepage

Siegfried Wenzel, Professor Emeritus of English at the University of Pennsylvania, has written widely on medieval vices and virtues as well as on Chaucer, Langland, and many aspects of Middle English literature. Having been a Guggenheim Fellow twice and recipient of fellowships from ACLS and NEH, he has edited several Latin texts with translations, including a Franciscan handbook of preaching material, and has published Preachers, Poets, and the Early English Lyric as well as a study of bilingual sermons from the age of Chaucer. His research in sermon manuscripts has led him to work on preaching and on Latin sermon collections from late-medieval England, and most recently to medieval artes praedicandi. He retired on July 1, 1997, and now lives in Chapel Hill, NC. E-mail address: ""
