Abstract

The anonymous ArnhemMystical Sermons (Royal Library,TheHague, ms. 133H13), copied
around 1560 in the St. Agnes convent in Arnhem, is the largest sermon collection
that has no other corresponding compilation. Till now, no concrete sources had been
identified. This article elaborates on my discovery that one sermon (111) has incorporated
a part of Ruusbroec’s Spiritual Espousals with significant adaptations. This article provides a
detailed analysis of the similarities and modifications, thereby showing the continuity and
discontinuity with the fourteenth-century Ruusbroec and relating these differences to the
context of the sixteenth-century by showing parallels with other mystical works from the
region of Arnhem, namely the Evangelical Pearl and the Temple of Our Soul.
