The sermon, a discourse on a spiritual and moral theme, had to convince the listener by appealing to his emotions. In his declamation and gestures, the preacher used exactly the same techniques as actors and singers. Bossuet's art of oratory was the result of a long tradition, while the lyricism of the texts show the influence of the mystical prose of Pierre de Bérulle.
