Summary:<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>The constitution of characters in Middle High German heroic epics is transtextual and transpersonal, yet specific to certain texts or characters. Characters can be formed by an aggregation of the recipients’ knowledge on narrative tradition or by a reduction to stereotypes. The anthropological ›rules‹ of heroic epics – collective feudal norms, transpersonal coding of emotions, the principles of heroism – are of only limited validity. Interpolations by recipients regarding the motivation of characters can be manipulated or rejected by the texts. Heterogeneity, traditionality, partially even alterity of the characters are exhibited; consistency is not necessarily intended.</jats:p>
