Kurzfassung/Abstract

The research project ‘Predigt im Kontext’, which is situated at the Catholic University of Eichstätt, explores the functions of medieval sermons, and how these functions change over time, by analyzing the transmission of sermons attributed to Master Eckhart and John Tauler in over 460 manuscripts. The present article represents the preliminary results of this new reception-orientated research into mystical sermons. It focuses on two main questions: 1. How is authorship treated in the transmission of German sermons from the twelfth to the early sixteenth century? And 2. Does the transmission of sermons by Eckhart and Tauler differ from the transmission of sermons by other authors? In the case of medieval sermon transmission as a whole in the German-spoken area, the article shows that most of the sermons and sermon collections are transmitted anonymously. Names of preachers are mostly found in those manuscripts that originate within close range – both in terms of time and place – of the preacher´s sphere of action. Eckhart´s name is found as an authority in quotations and tracts, but he is actually very rarely named as the preacher of a sermon. This shows that the omission of his name in the sermon transmission cannot be linked to the heresy trial against him, but has to be seen within the context of sermon transmission as a whole. Tauler, on the other hand, is named very often, not only as the author of his own sermons, but also of sermons by other mystics, and of other mystical texts. This implies that in the course of the fifteenth century, Tauler´s name became a ‘brand name’ for mystical texts of high quality; the name functioned entirely independently of the historical figure of John Tauler. Even these initial findings of the project ‘Predigt im Kontext’ demonstrate the importance of analyzing of the transmission context of sermons, and especially of the sermons of the great mystics Master Eckhart and John Tauler.
