Title proper taken from AHDS Catalogue Form

'Der Tum' is a German poem dedicated to the virgin Mary, composed by Heinrich von Mügeln in the mid of the 14th century. Containing allegorical and typological images for the incarnation of Christ, it is written in an elaborated rhetorical style ('geblümter Stil') that follows Latin models. The 72 strophes correspond to the medieval conception of the 72 languages of mankind. Besides the general mariological topic the poem deals with contemporaneous questions of poetology and language theory: how can the mystery of the incarnation be expressed by human language?
