    L'étonnant fortune de cet ouvrage, œuvre de piété chrétienne de la fin du XIVe siècle ou du début du XVe siècle, tient du prodige. Longtemps, dans les monastères d'Europe aucun livre n'eut pareil succès, ce qui fit dire à Fontenelle : ""L'Imitation de Jésus-Christ" est le plus beau livre qui soit parti de la main d'un homme, puisque l'Evangile n'en vient pas". Au cours des siècles, l'influence de l'Imitation de Jésus-Christ ne s'est pas démentie.
