Title: Correcties op het aan Pomerius toegedachte œuvre
Author(s): SCHEPERS, Kees

Henricus Pomerius (Hendrik Uten Bogaerde, 1382-1469) wrote several Latin commentaries on the Paternoster. Two blockbooks on the same subject were designed to illustrate these texts.
Recently a Middle Dutch text, the Gheestelike leere, dealing for the most part with the Paternoster, has been attributed to Pomerius. The suggestion has been made that Pomerius should also be the author of the Ridderboec, a Middle Dutch catechetical treaty that also deals in great length with the Paternoster.
This article argues that these Middle Dutch texts are anonymous and derive in different ways from Pomerius’ commentaries and the blockbooks, instead of preceding them. Pomerius remains to be an author only known to have written Latin texts.
