Überlegungen zur digitalen Edition mystischer Mosaiktraktate des Spätmittelalters

Nadine Arndt and Lydia Wegener
From the journal Das Mittelalter


The article presents the concept of a digital edition of late-medieval mystical mosaic treatises. These widespread publication, which are usually labelled as ‘pseudo-Eckhart’, are characterised by an almost unfathomable fluctuation between the manuscripts. Until today, this variance has prevented the publication of any traditional book editions and complicated any critical evaluation. The intended edition focusses on Pfeiffer’s treatise XI/2 (‘Von der übervart der gotheit 2’) as a test case. It will provide access to divergent versions of this treatise and enable modern readers to compare them on different textual levels.
