This article examines the relationship between a passage (Summer Part XXXVIII, vs. 96-207) in Dirc van Delft’s Tafel vanden kersten ghelove (1404) and two fifteenth-century artes moriendi: the Speculum artis bene moriendi and the Picture Ars Moriendi. It demonstrates that there are clear similarities between the three texts and claims that these similarities suggest a common Latin source text. It then continues to partly reconstruct this source text.
