Title: Nederlandse kiemen in de klassieke Spaanse spiritualiteit
Author(s): PACHO, Eulogio
Journal: Ons Geestelijk Erf
Volume: 78 Issue: 2 Date: Juni 2004
Eulogio Pacho exposes in depth the historical relations between the spiritual literature of the Late Middle Ages in the Low Lands, and the Spanish spiritual literature of the Golden Age. His paper “The Spirituality of the Low Lands: foundational elements of Classical Spanish Spirituality” provides a well documented systematic revision that describes and analyzes the journey of Northern European spirituality into Golden Age Spain. It provides information about publication, distribution and reception of Flemish works (or Flemish inspired ones) in Spain, about texts often fully or partly translated into Latin or Spanish, or merely serving as inspiration for other Spanish works. The publication and distribution in Spain of the whole or part of Ruusbroec’s works receive special attention in this historical revision, especially in trying to discover whether or not Saint John of the Cross (frequently compared and related to Ruusbroec, Suso and Tauler) could in fact have had direct access to his works.
