[Reform as Textual Strategy: Studies of the Literary Oeuvre of Johannes Meyer, OP]
Series:Literatur – Theorie – Geschichte 16
Aims and Scope
The Dominican Johannes Meyer (1422/23–1485) left a body of texts that cover a broad range of topics and sources. The study examines the specific literary patterns and textual strategies found in his texts, and employs discourse analysis to ask how Meyer positioned himself in the context of late medieval monastic reform, the theology of piety, and the reception of mysticism, and to assess his contribution to 15th-century German literature.
