About this artwork

This codex captures the repertoire of a rhetoric chamber that did not belong to one of the central cities over a longer period and is therefore valuable for (local) collective memory. It contains arrangements of mainly Antwerp plays that tell us something about the reception of this work in the provinces and smaller rooms. Among these operations, we also find two Ogier plays back a leading Antwerp rhetoric and playwright. The handwriting thus carries benchmarks in the study of the reception of rhetoric games from the central cities in the provinces in general and the reception of the work of Ogier in particular.
