Eva Vandemeulebroucke, De autoriteit van een kok. Hoe van Jan van Leeuwen († 1378) een auctor werd gemaakt

During the Middle Ages the right to preach God’s Word was restricted to the Latin-educated members of the Church. Over the years they had claimed that only they had the authority to communicate and interpret divine doctrines, thereby assuring the faithful of the means by which they would achieve eternal life in heaven. It was unimaginable that an illiterate cook – officially excluded from all forms of religious authority – would be seen as capable of guiding the faithful in any way through spiritual tracts on the sublime path to the light of eternal salvation. This article makes clear how the lay brother Jan van Leeuwen († 1378) claimed his right to be heard, and the ways in which the Groenendaal monastery facilitated his mission. By an in-depth analysis of the opera omnia manuscripts and the treatises of the ‘bonus cocus’, it will be shown how Jan van Leeuwen was fashioned into an auctor, worthy of faith and obedience, who could occupy a place next to the iconic Jan van Ruusbroec.

 

Bram Ieven, Mondriaan als Landkaart. Life Writing en mediatheorie als uitgangspunten voor een interdisciplinaire neerlandistiek

In recent years, interdisciplinary approaches in literary studies such as celebrity culture and life writing have rekindled the interest in (auto)biographical writing. This article discusses the emergence of this approach in Dutch literary studies. Focusing specifically on the recent biography of Piet Mondriaan by Léon Hanssen, the question this article address is whether the life writing approach enables Dutch literary studies to contribute to an interdisciplinary field of Dutch studies in which literary methods are used to shed new light on the visual arts and modernism (Mondriaan and De Stijl).

 

Jaap Goedegebuure, Frans Kellendonk in de spiegel van de literatuurwetenschap

This article focuses on the reception and interpretation of Frans Kellendonk’s literary work. A distinction is made between trends in literary scholarship during the last twenty five years and evaluations by literary critics and essayists. Finally the article discusses some future trends, made possible by the recent publication of unknown materials from Kellendonks legacy.
