The anonymous Middle Dutch treatise known as Sub umbra illius, handed down in MS. Berlin, cod. germ. qu. 1084, is an important document in the medieval debate on Eckhart’s philosophy conducted in German and Dutch vernaculars. The author knew the work of Thomas Aquinas well, used a technical lexicon of remarkable precision, and discussed in detail the doctrine of human perfection formulated by Eckhart in his German Sermon Q 52. The text was first published by Langenberg in 1902 and is re-edited after a collation with the manuscript and with a commentary on the sources used by the author.
