Item description for Spirituality Renewed Studies on Significant Representatives of the Modern Devotion (Studies in Spirituality Supplements) by H. Blommestijn...
This volume contains nine essays on aspects of the Modern Devotion and its influence. Six studies deal with the spiritual development of important representatives of this late medieval church reform movement: Geert Grote, founder of the movement (two contributions), Jan Brinckerinck, Gerard Zerbolt van Zutphen (two contributions) and Alijt Bake, a female mystic who is not widely known outside the Low Countries. The three remaining studies bear upon the nunnery 'Sanct-Agnetenhuus' in Kampen, the devotion to Liduina, the 'Virgin of Schiedam', from the Middle Ages until the present day and a fifteenth-century ars moriendi here for the first time edited with full commentary. The collection has been edited by staff members of the Titus Brandsma Institute in Nijmegen. The study of the spirituality and history of the Modern Devotion is one of the key topics of interest in this Institute. An innovative analysis of aspects of Thomas a Kempis's De imitatione Christi is currently one of the focal points of the Institute's research. In 2003 Gerardi Magni Opera omnia, vol. I, Ad Gerardi Magni Opera omnia Prolegomena. Die Forschungslage des gesammten Schriftums und kritische Edition des Traktates Contra turrim Traiectensem was published in the Corpus Christianorum series, which contains a detailed inventory of the transmission and earlier editions of the works of Geert Grote by Rudolf Th. M. van Dijk O.Carm., to whom this collection of essays is dedicated.
