Eckhart is a towering figure of the Middle Ages who in Teaching and Preaching with Patristic auctoritates joins Germany and France (Erfurt-Paris-Strasbourg-Cologne) bringing alive their common past. The experts on E.’s Latin exegetical works are French, on E.s German and Latin homilies German. However, E.’s Patristic sources have never systematically been explored. Through the exceptional cooperation of the French and German experts in TEAPREA, their constant interaction, combination of competences, giving access to resources, scattered in France and Germany, we will reveal the Patristic foundations of this important bridge builder.
