Theologia Germanica (circa 1500) is the title given to an anonymous mystical treatise believed to have been written in the later 14th century. According to the introduction of the Theologia, the author was a priest and a member of the Teutonic Order living in Frankfurt, Germany. The first printed edition was made under the direction of Martin Luther in 1516. In 1518 he produced a more complete edition on the basis of a new manuscript that had come to his attention. It survives today in only eight manuscripts, all from the second half of the fifteenth century. It emphasizes humility, self- negation, and a mystical union with the Divine.
