Abstract: Even after the condemnation of his doctrine by In agro dominico in 1329, the influence of Meister Eckhart did not cease during the 14th century inside and outside of the ecclesiastical province of Cologne. A number of anti-Eckhart treatises written by Jan van Leeuwen (d. 1378) suggest the spread of Eckhart’s writings as well as of the news about the condemnation in the 14th century Brabant. Although Leeuwen’s harsh attitude toward Eckhart is well-attested to by the striking slander of the former against latter, studies of the content of Leeuwen’s criticism, specifically the relation between his criticism and the condemnation of Eckhart’s doctrine, have remained rather scarce. Therefore, this article explores (1) to what degree and through what media Leeuwen was informed about the condemnation of Eckhart’s doctrine and (2) whether Leeuwen’s criticism is related to any of Eckhart’s condemned doctrines, and, if so, what Leeuwen’s theological position is.
