Dear Martin, thank you for this great website. What a resource! I stumbled in looking for information on Lydgate's "Dance of Death," and was stunned by what you've put together. Thank you for providing the whole text (and manuscript variants) of the EETS edition of Lydgate's poem, complete with so many manuscript images (and links to them). Your great work is highly appreciated.

Nice page. Found it by chance searching for Luebeck. And it reminded me of Slovenian late-medieval Danse Macabre fresco from Hrastovlje (dated 1490). More info found here;

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hrastovlje (in english) and https://sl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mrtva%C5%A1ki_ples_(Hrastovlje) - sorry, no translation (I can translate it if you wish).

Kind regards!

Hi Vodnar

The dance in Hrastovlje is quite famous. I activated your links.

Best regards
Martin

This site is fantastic! It is informative, scholarly and downright fascinating. Huge congratulations to Martin. I couldn't have written my 'Danse macabre' without your help and inspiration.

Thanks for all great images posted on your website.
It has helped me a lot to understand about the contemporary cults to the Death in western side.

btw, I have tried to reach you via e-mail many times, but It keeps rejected somehow.

So, are you still there???? if so, how do I contact you? I have personal questions!!

Hi Jay

Sorry for not answering sooner. I have just returned from Berlin (although I didn't visit the dance of death in St. Mary's this year).

That's odd. My Gmail-address is on my contacts page. I just tried it, and it works fine. I assume you remember to remove the parenthesis and spaces (or that you simply click the link). What kind of error message do you get?

Salve
sono interessato a queste xilografie
dove posso trovare copie cartacee?
aspetto vostre notizie

cordiali saluti
Andrea

Hi Andrea

Personally I prefer to have the images on my PC. Paper tends to pile up on my table along with all those books I have to read someday.

If you want paper copies, I guess you'll have to print them out yourself. :-)

Congratulations for this site. It has helped me a lot with my academic research about the contemporany cults to the Death in Latin America (Santa Muerte and San La Muerte). All the iconoghaphical and theological's elements on these Danse Macabre are a fundamental precedent for the understanding of these modern cults on my región. Thank you.

Dear Martin,

I really love your very useful (and witty!) website with so much excellent picture material! This September (18th-19th) I will be talking in Basel about 'das Nachleben' of the dance of death of Basel. Your website is a big help! Thank you very much!

Afther visiting Talinn and seeing the impressive painting I searched for information and found your site. Fantastic! It turned out that the original text, written in modern characters is almost direct to read for dutch people! The hanze-towns must have cost this universal language just like english is nowadays. I send your site to my grownup children, why liked your moving skelt hands a lot!
