Meister Eckhart, The German Works: 56 Homilies for the Liturgical Year. 2. De sanctis
Introduction, Translation and Notes

This volume (based on Loris Sturlese’s liturgical ordering) contains the vernacular texts and English translations of 56 of Eckhart’s German sermons, which can be linked with the cycle of preaching during the liturgical year on the Saints and other occasions (De sanctis). It is the second volume, following ETS 9 (De tempore), and gives us Eckhart’s preaching in literary form. The corpus of sermons that have been relocated into their liturgical place are taken from the critical edition of Kohlhammer to which was added a new English translation (for some of the sermons the first so in English). It opens a door to students and interested readers into the world of Eckhart’s liturgical preaching, helped by a thorough general introduction on the topic of sainthood, short prefaces to all homilies and notes.
