Medieval Christians, although troubled by the passage of time, confi¬dently awaited the second advent of Christ. As the twelfth-century Cistercian father Guerric of Igny states, “I am absolutely sure that in the end he will appear and will prove not to have deceived me; so in spite of the delay he imposes I shall go on waiting for him confidently, because he certainly will come and will not be later than the most timely day.” The fervor of these words from Guerric’s first sermon for the advent season may surprise some readers, for typically, Protestant Christians have been taught that the advent hope was lost during the Middle Ages. Nothing could be further from the truth.
