Textual phenomena within an appeal of Johann Geiler von Kaysersberg: Religious identity and juridical self-awareness in the late Middle Ages

The article deals with textual phenomena such as isotopy, recurrence or contiguity within a late medieval text, the so-called 21 articles from 1501 written by Johann Geiler von Kaysersberg. The famous preacher argues against heretic judicial instructions initiated by Strasbourg’s city council. Lexically, Geiler focuses on a certain “judgmental concept” in which he accuses, warns, japes, moderates or constructively proposes his point of view. To sum up, he frequently uses rhetorical features in order to write intelligibly.
