    Abstract:
    ‘Große Heidelberger Liederhandschrift’, ‘Ambrasser Heldenbuch’, ‘Rostocker Liederbuch’, ‘Hausbuch des Michael de Leone’, ‘Heidelberger Schicksalsbuch’, ‘Alsfelder Dirigierrolle’, ‘Bamberger mathematisches Manuskript’ …, there are many established names for medieval German manuscripts. Their proper names consist of nominal phrases and the heads of these phrases are common nouns, which in turn are used as labels for groups of manuscripts. But who introduced thenames and labels for manuscripts? Which labels are used (by whom) and is their terminology consistent? What do the ‘Große Heidelberger Liederhandschrift’, the ‘Weingartner Liederhandschrift’, the ‘Budapester Liederhandschrift’, the ‘Jeanaer Liederhandschrift’ and all the other Liederhandschriften (manuscripts of songs) have in common? And what are the differences from the Liederbücher (books of songs) like the ‘Rostocker Liederbuch’, the ‘Königsteiner Liederbuch’, ‘Schedels Liederbuch’ or ‘Fichards Liederbuch’. Is there a common understanding what a Liederhandschrift, Liederbuch, Hausbuch or Schicksalsbuch is? What do this labels imply? And are they useful or do they prevent an unbiased analysis?
