  • The "Traktat von der Minne": A Chapter in the Reception of Meister Eckhart's Mysticism

    • John Hiltalingen, of Basel, ca. 1332-1392. Traktat von der Minne.
    • Mysticism -- History -- Middle Ages, 600-1500.
    Abstract:
      Despite the condemnation of twenty-eight articles from Meister Eckhart's Latin and German works by Pope John XXII in 1329, the Dominican mystic continued to be read by a variety of German and Dutch writers for the next century and a half. Eckhart's reception is evident not only among the German Dominicans, but also among Franciscans and Augustinians. The Traktat von der Minne is a vernacular scholastic quaestio on 1 John 4:16 ("God is love"). This work, unusual both in form and content, has recently been ascribed to the Augustinian master John Hiltalingen of Basel (ca. 1332–1392). The treatise combines Augustinian illumination theory, the identification of the movement of love within the soul as the Holy Spirit and not a created form of grace, and Eckhart's teachings about the uncreated something in the soul. Hiltalinger's Traktat is one of the most original adaptations of Eckhart's thought in the fourteenth century.

  • "May the Hatchet and the Hammer Never Damage It!": The Fate of the Cathedral of Chartres during the French Revolution
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Cathédrale de Chartres -- History -- 18th century.
    Abstract:
      According to a very dramatic account of Chartres during the French Revolution, the town's Gothic cathedral barely escaped destruction in November 1793 after the local Popular Society lobbied in favor of a proposal to tear it down. An in-depth examination casts some doubt on the veracity of this tale. Some of the sources that may have supported this story have since been destroyed, while the records of the municipal, district, and departmental governments make no mention of any such proposal. Furthermore, the actions of the local government on behalf of the cathedral throughout the Revolution reveal the officials' dedication to preserving its structural stability and sacred character. They could hardly have contemplated destroying a building that they had so painstakingly tried to maintain.

  • The Grasshopper Shrine at Cold Spring, Minnesota: Religion and Market Capitalism among German-American Catholics
    [Access article in HTML] [Access article in PDF]
    Subject Headings:
    • Christian shrines -- Minnesota -- Cold Spring.
    • German Americans -- Minnesota -- Cold Spring -- Religion.
    • Capitalism -- Religious aspects -- Catholic Church.
    Abstract:
      This essay provides a peculiarly Catholic slant to a long-running debate in American history over the role of religion in the transition to rural capitalism. The author investigates the construction of a small votive chapel outside the village of Cold Spring, Minnesota, ostensibly built to secure relief from the locust plagues of the 1870's, and argues that the shrine in reality had less to do with insect pests and more to do with the community's need to assert traditional, pre-capitalist values in the face of growing prosperity and rapidly changing market conditions. He maintains further that the ritual language expressed in the chapel's dedication evoked an intensely communalist ethic, based on shared striving, sharing, and reciprocity, that was jeopardized by the transition to more commercialized agriculture.
