Rather than presenting the so-called ›Wessobrunner Gebet‹ under its manuscript ›title‹ De poeta, today’s critics usually refer to the text as ›Wessobrunner Gebet‹ or ›Wessobrunner Schöpfungsgedicht‹. Both titles are misleading. However, regardless of its reception history, it is worthwhile analyzing the text in light of the form and genre traditions implicated by its modern titles. This essay offers a new perspective on the poetic, generic, and conceptual location of the ›Wessobrunner Gebet‹ in Old High German literary history.
