Broeders en Zusters van het Gemene Leven
Brothers and sisters of Common Life, religious men and women, living
in non-monastic communities, following the ideas of the Devotio
Moderna. The first of these houses was founded in 1374 by Geert Grote,
who donated a house to a group of religious women, who were neither
nuns nor beguines.
In course of time this could develop into a more monastic life,
that resulted in the Augustinian canons of the
Kapittel van Windesheim.
Ms NL-Na 19 may be an antiphoner from brethren in
Arnhem or surroundings.
