(p.1) Introduction
Marquard von Lindau and the Challenges of Religious Life in Late Medieval Germany

Stephen Mossman (Contributor Webpage)

Oxford University Press

This introductory chapter presents a comprehensive biography of Marquard von Lindau, constructed from a new examination of the original documentary evidence. The biography considers in particular depth Marquard's role in the Great Schism, his tenure as provincial minister of the South German province of the Franciscan Order, and his disputations with the Prague rabbi Yom‐Tov Lipmann Mühlhausen. A thematic overview and categorization of his numerous and diverse works is offered for the reader's orientation, and sketches drawn of the milieu in which Marquard operated and the audience for which he wrote. The introduction localizes Marquard's pragmatic works within the late medieval development of ‘Frömmigkeitstheologie’, and builds on Berndt Hamm's theory surrounding that concept, and that of ‘normative Zentrierung’, to position Marquard's oeuvre within the history of pre‐Reformation ideas.

Keywords:   Marquard von Lindau, biography, Great Schism, Yom‐Tov Lipmann Mühlhausen, audience, Frömmigkeitstheologie, Berndt Hamm, normative Zentrierung, history of ideas
