Already in his lifetime and even more afterwards Ruusbroec's works showed a tendency to break thtough the narrow limits of the Netherlands linguistic area. Translations were spread about in print much earlier than the original versions. This edition presents on the one hand the critical Middle Dutch text and on the other a new English Translation. A critical comment is provided.
The volumes 5 and 6 of the Opera Omnia are devoted to Van den geesteliken tabernakel.
