      From evidence within the work, Hrostvitha is credited with writing Hrotsvit of Gandersheim book plays, eight poems, a poem honoring Otto I and the history of the abbey community. May you graciously deign to assist the prayers and new little songs of your handmaiden Hrotsvit, who with zeal ministering to my womanly muse, now humbly sings in dactylic measures, desiring to touch, if ever so lightly, upon a tiny portion of the praise that is yours, O virgin, and to celebrate the bright beginnings of your blessed origin and also your royal child.

By doing this frequently and with tender kindness Joachim merited to receive such a recompense that his own substance was increased very rapidly, and he excelled all his associates in prosperity; nor was there another on earth who was as enriched with an abundance of all things. The essays are divided into four sections, as the subtitle indicates. This son, who after he had taken upon himself a human form, opened the way to eternity, by which all reach the father's land which had been lost; he who is called Christ, to whom be celestial glory.
