This audio book presents important medieval texts (Millstatt Psalter, Master Eckhart, Tauler, Mechthild von Magdeburg, and others) spoken in the original language (Old Saxon, Middle High German/Middle Low German) by, among others, Prof. Hildegard Keller (University of Zurich), one of the best-known speakers of historical texts. The texts revolve around convents or their way of life, their rules and their theology (mysticism). The audio book is accompanied by a booklet containing all the texts (with translations) and a comprehensive introduction. The recordings provide a most interesting impression of the language and themes of sacred texts from the Early and High Middle Ages from the point of view of the history both of language and of ideas. The audio book was produced in collaboration with the Ruhrlandmuseum (Essen) and the Federal German Art and Exhibition Hall (Bonn) in the context of the exhibition “Krone und Schleier. Kunst aus mittelalterlichen Frauenklöstern” (‘Crown and Veil. Art from Medieval Convents’) (March–June 2005).
