Mikhail Khorkov is giving a working paper on 'Cusanus in Erfurt: A pre-history of the reception of the works of Nicolaus Cusanus at the Carthusians in Erfurt'

The present paper is part of my research project on the history of the Cusanus reception in the Erfurt Carthusian monastery in the 15th century. The focus of this project is not only on the texts of Nicholas of Cusa, but also on the motifs and context of their reception, especially on the debate on the nature of the mystical theology and the interpretation of the earlier medieval mysticism. In this paper, the first controversy of Nicholas of Cusa with the Erfurt Carthusians on the interpretation of wisdom is examined.
