The attribution of the Sermones de tempore et de sanctis to Saint Bonaventura is spurious. The true author of the great majority of the Sermones is Servasanctus de Faenza - see B. Distelbrink, 'Bonaventurae scripta', 1975, p. 187 (no. 209), pp. 184-185 (no. 205). Entered under Pseudo- Bonaventura by GW, Bod-inc, CIBN and others. Goff notes that the work is sometimes erroneously attributed to Hugo de Sancto Caro.
Formerly assigned to Peter van Os (cf. HPT).
