Abstract

INTRODUCTION in Latin d medieval Dutch. The central theme of death d the hereafter comprises, among other things, meditations on the brevity of life, accounts of suffering due to (often painful) diseases, the dying hour itself, visions of deceased fellow brethren, saints or divine persons, d devils threatening the passage of the souls into Heaven. Death was occasion to commemorate how a deceased member of the community had embodied the ideals d lifestyle aimed for. The description of the religious character is strongly coloured by devout qualifications, derived from the Christi tradition. These key words, joined together into commonplace phrases, are used to contextualise the deceased brother or sister within the religious framework of the movement. Personal qualities occur not only in words denoting evaluative characteristic such as 'humble', 'sinful', 'gluttonous', 'zeal', d 'devotion', but there are my words thai have, themselves, a strong positive or negative connotative value, such as 'world', 'women', 'hell', 'heaven', 'wealth', d 'poverty'. The descriptions of the process of dying d illness which precede death vary considerably in length, from several pages to a single paragraph. The fragment below is part of a less detailed account concerning a brother who died in about
