Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book titled A Companion to Mysticism and Devotion in Northern Germany in the Late Middle Ages contains the table of contents, the preface, a list of contributors, a list of maps, a list of illustrations, and a list of textual appendices to the chapters. The book explores the hitherto uncharted late medieval religious landscape of Northern Germany, from 13th-century Helfta to the 15th-century Lüneburg convents. The mystical and devotional writing of Northern Germany is contextualised through chapters on the Netherlands, Scandinavia and East Prussia. The seminal influence of the liturgy on these texts and their transmission is revealed in the creative interplay of Latin and Low German.
