Death, judgement, heaven, and hell are the themes of a late medieval hymn manuscript associated with the Brethren of the Common Life at Zwolle. These same themes constitute the basis of penitential meditation in these circles. This book offers a new view on the spirituality of the Modern Devotion and its close connection with music.
