Prof. dr. Veerle Fraeters (University of Antwerp) will speak to us about 'Hadewijch's 'books'? Tracing the (non-)publication tactics of a thirteenth century beguine writer'

Veerle Fraeters is Professor at the Ruusbroec Institute of the University of Antwerp. She specializes in medieval mysticism, with a special focus on the Middle Dutch tradition, on visionary literature, on women authors and on the Brabantine mystic Hadewijch. Recent publications include, as author, the chapter 'Visio' in the Cambridge Companion to Christian Mysticism (2012), and, as editor (with M.-E. Gongora and Th. de Hemptinne), the volume Speaking to the Eye. Sight and Insight through Text and Image (1150-1650) (Brepols, 2013) and (with Imke de Gier), Mulieres Religiosae. Shaping Female Spiritual Authority in the Medieval and Early Modern Times (Brepols, 2014). She is editor, with Frank Willaert, of the new edition with Dutch translation and commentary of Hadewijchs Verzamelde Werken (Complete Works) of which the prize winning first volume Liederen (Songs) came out in 2009 (Historische Uitgeverij Groningen).
