Abstract

This article compares the Arnhem mystical sermons and the Temple of our Soul regarding the nature of the use of sources and the differences and similarities in theological emphasis between the authors and their sources. The article also examines the question if one of the authors of the Arnhem mystical sermons and the Temple made use of each other’s text, which would have implications for the dating of the Arnhem mystical sermons, or if the authors of the Temple and the Arnhem mystical sermons quote Jordanus’ sermon and/or Ps.-Augustine independently of each other. This article will employ a comparative literary analysis of the texts of Ps.-Augustine, Jordanus, the Temple, and the Arnhem mystical sermons. The first section analyses the structure and genres of the four texts and the positioning of the parallel passages in order to examine the differences and similarities. The second section compares the specific parallel passages in order to examine the ways in which the authors of the Temple and the Arnhem mystical sermons quote Jordanus’ sermon and Ps.-Augustine.
