Notes: This edition and study of the Manual for the Provost of Medingen (c. 1479) is the first to present a complete liturgical manuscript from a northern German convent. The Latin and vernacular text together with the music encompass the whole life of the convent from Christmas to saints' days, from oblation to funeral, including the Low German Statutes for the lay members of the convent. The codex is analysed as a codicological, liturgical and musicological document in the context of the reform movement as played out in the Cistercian convent of Medingen. The volume thus provides a cultural history of the generation before the Lutheran Reformation in a unique monastic landscape.
