Zusammenfassung

This article provides a scholarly edition of the correspondence between the literary historian Georg Gottfried Gervinus (1805–1871) and the philologist Wilhelm Scherer (1841–1886) during the years 1869–1870. The exchange of letters between the two scholars whose publications have been highly formative with regard to the developing literary historiography of their time is a document of the history of the germanistische Mediävistik. It yields insights into the contemporary research discussions about philological problems of numerous medieval texts, especially of the 11th and 12th century, as well as into the individual development of the correspondents’ conceptual views on literary historiography.
