Ruysbroek's Origins[edit]

It is NOT certain he was of the village of Ruysbroek: the Groenendael necrology names him Dominus, used exclusively for monks of noble birth, so it is is LIKELY he was closely related to the Lord of that manor, which is not necessarily the same thing. The Ruysbroeks were a sept of the Clutincx (many variations on spelling, this is the most accurate according to the standards of modern Flemish) clan, who were the original owners of at least half the land Brussels was built on, roughly from the line of the current north-south railway as far as Wavre to the east, Uccle in the south, and Evere in the north. The Clutincx were Lieutenants of the Duke, aldermen of the town and minor nobility. Similarly, there are connections in the Hinckaert line to the ducal house, and it is even possible that a close female relative (? sister) may have been a mistress of the Duke - see the Pippenoy genealogies. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 87.65.220.7 (talk) 18:33, 18 January 2008 (UTC) Upon further consideration, I think this paragraph could be restructured, eliminating most of the Ruusbroec history, as that is covered by the Ruusbroec link. Underwood did little more than rehash the Bollandists' notes accompanying their 1884 edition of Pomerius, with no real additions of her own. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.241.227.84 (talk) 09:27, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Place of death[edit]

Britannica lists Underhill's place of death as London, while Wikipedia lists it as just 'England'. I'd like to get a detailed citation: I expect 'The Life of Evelyn Underhill' might have it, or another book on Underhill. Next time I'm in the library, I'll get one. But if someone else can do it sooner, it'd be great if you could update the article and maybe leave a note on my user talk. —Tom Morris (talk) 00:18, 17 March 2011 (UTC)

The Essentials of Mysticism[edit]

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the book The Essentials of Mysticism from 1999 is not a reprint of the book from 1920 but rather of another compilation from 1995. The title is still the same, yet the contents of the 1995/1999 edition differs from the original one - The Mysticism of Plotinus is missing here, the same for The Mystic as Creative Artist and other essays; others, on the contrary, are added from other collections. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 78.102.209.24 (talk) 16:16, 4 May 2015 (UTC)
