My stay at the NIAS allowed me to fulfill a long-term goal, namely the publication of a book based on the research I have been doing for the past four academic years, entitled De literaire cultuur aan het hof van de Beierse graven van Holland omstreeks 1400 (‘The Literary culture in the court of the Beier counts of Holland circa 1400’).
