The aim of our essay is to show the centrality of the ars predicandi during the pontificate of Innocent III (1198-1216). He was an expert preacher who regularly preached in Roman churches and basilicas as well as during the IV  Lateran Council (1215). Innocent III’s preaching activity is principally accounted for by his collection of model sermons. This essay investigates the pope’s modus predicandi through the analysis of some of the main themes of his  sermons. Innocent III presented himself as the heir of a tradition developing in Rome since the twelfth century and stemming from the connection among biblical exegesis, preaching and liturgy. Through pastoral care and the  promotion and discipline of preaching, the pope and the Roman Curia tried to achieve a more effective governance of the Church and Christian society.
