Abstract :
This article shows that passages in John of Ruusbroec’s Dat rike der ghelievenand Vanden kerstenen ghelove on life after Judgment Day were adapted from Hugh Ripelin of Strasbourg’s Compendium theologicae veritatis. Ruusbroec transposes the passages he uses into his very own language and textual structure. Therefore, while apparantly compiling like every other medieval author of spiritual texts, Ruusbroec does in fact confirm his stature as a self-conscious and personal author.
