Description

Because the original manuscripts of Gertrude’s works remain unknown, it has long been thought that she was forgotten until the 1536 editio princeps of The Herald. In the last twenty-five years, several new partial manuscripts of the work have been discovered, both in Latin and German, attesting to its reception in Central and Southern Germany. This panel focuses on the early period of The Herald's transmission, through the two most important manuscripts.
