Ludolf of Sudheim’s Journey to the Holy Land (the only copy of the Low German translation in private hands, and one of only nine identified copies), and an extensive Meditation on the Life of Christ in Low German (possibly unique) would be important in any context; here their interest is increased by their inclusion in a carefully thought-out Miscellany that reflects the spirituality of the Modern Devotion and includes the Imitation of Christ, five visionary texts describing journeys to Heaven and Hell (one copied twice), and six texts on the Passion of Christ.
