"The Paradisus anime intelligentis is arguably the most important sermon collection to survive from late medieval Germany; a collection in which an edited selection of Meister Eckhart’s sermons is incorporated within a much broader spectrum of Dominican philosophical-theological preaching in the German vernacular from the earlier part of the fourteenth century."
