Chapter Summary

This chapter first provides a global analysis of the later transmission of the texts, to the extent that it can tell something about the thirteenth-century genesis of the Limburg sermons. Next follows a consideration of the relation to the Letters of Hadewijch, a Middle Dutch corpus with which the Limburg sermons have emphatic ties. The third section deals with the striking interest in minne mysticism that these sermons exhibit and places this in a somewhat wider context. The next two sections both study the relationship between the Limburg sermons and the Old French religious tradition, which is both so close and yet very distant at one and the same time. In conclusion, the chapter explores dimensions of the European network of persons and circles interested in mysticism with which the Limburg sermons might be associated.

Keywords: Hadewijch; later transmission; Limburg sermons; Middle Dutch corpus; minne mysticism
