Abstract
The article "Less is more: on one text-forming model in the medieval religious literature" discusses various options of syntactic and semantic schemes that form a model of the inversely proportional correspondence between the characteristics and manifestations of the human soul, on the one hand, and their importance to the religious life - on the other. The results of the analysis of the German mystic-devotional literature of the 13th-14th centuries are presented with a special focus on the "Flowing Light of the Godhead" Mechthild's of Magdeburg.
