The Gruuthuse Manuscript – Literature, music and devotion around 1400

The Gruuthuse Manuscript – Literature, music and devotion around 1400, Bruges, April 2013

The Gruuthuse Manuscript was compiled in Bruges around 1395-1408. Besides prayers and poems, the manuscript contains the oldest known collection of songs with musical notation in the Low Countries. It is a highlight in Middle Dutch literature and an important source of information on late medieval urban culture in the Netherlands. The conference will examine a number of themes broached by the manuscript: music, love, ‘const’, fellowship and devotion. These themes are a starting point for an international and multidisciplinary approach to (urban) culture in Northwest Europe in the early fifteenth century. New insights in the field of history, art history, literature and musicology will be developed during this conference.
