This volume seeks to contribute to medieval scholarship by establishing that within his writings, Hartmann von Aue addresses a problem characteristic of his period, "Gott und der Welt gefallen", by fusing the quest for secular happiness as it is presented in the heroic literatures of ancient and medieval times with the search for spiritual happiness as it is depicted by St Augustine in his "Civitas Dei". In the discussion of the quest for "saelde" within Hartmann's works, it aims to establish the pilgrimage motif as his main tectonic principle and most significant action motif. The examination of Hartmann's tectonic principle also documents the ideologized transformation of the pilgrimage motif as a progression from the somewhat stark dualism of his "Kreuzzugslieder" to the gradualism in "Gregorius" and "Der arme Heinrich" and marks a peak of gothic style and ideology in the medieval epic tradition.
