Leven van Lutgart

Collection: Royal Danish Library, NKS 168 kvart

The Leven van Lutgart or Leven van Sinte Lutgart is a 13th-century anonymous Middle Dutch verse hagiography of St Lutgardis, sometimes attributed to William of Afflighem, based on the Latin Vita Lutgardis by Thomas of Cantimpré. The Digital Library for Dutch Literature lists it as one of the thousand works in the Canon of Dutch Literature. Originally compiled in three books, the second and third survive in an illuminated manuscript in the Royal Library, Copenhagen (shelfmark NKS 168 kvart). (continued on English Wikipedia)
