Abstract It is discussed how a limiting procedure of conformal field theories may result in logarithmic conformal field theories with Jordan cells of arbitrary rank. This extends our work on rank-two Jordan cells. We also consider the limits of certain three-point functions and find that they are compatible with known results. The general construction is illustrated by logarithmic limits of minimal models in conformal field theory. Characters of quasirational representations are found to emerge as the limits of the associated irreducible Virasoro characters.
