This article contains the first edition of three recently discovered unique Middle Dutch texts of the flagellants’ ritual which took place in 1349. These are a liturgy, a song in praise of the Virgin Mary and a sermon, handed down on a scroll dating from the middle of the fourteenth century. It is likely that this scroll was carried along in flagellants’ processions and was used by the precentor. The texts are published in a critical edition, all three are supplied with an introduction, an explanation of words and a commentary. The appendixes contain the diplomatic editions of the three texts, together with corresponding passages from German, French and Dutch parallel texts.
