Abstract

In his Fable mystique, Michel de Certeau emphasizes the Copernican revolution that shaped western mysticism in the early modern period: it became particularized as a modus loquendi, a way of speaking. The three texts examined here, written by the Jesuit Maximilian van der Sandt in the first half of the 17th C, provide a remarkable example of the philological defense of the sermo mysticus considered as a modus loquendi. This article underlines the main points of this defense: A grammatical and linguistic evaluation, the definition of a specific lexical invention, and the status of the metaphor.
