Abstract

In Der Stricker's tale "Der Pfaffe Amis" the reader repeatedly comes across aonctradictions and ambiguities. On the one hand, the protagonist is identified by the narrator as the most commendable, generous and ingenious man who ever lived, on the other, he is tainted as the originatori of lies and deception. Research has attempted to tackle these discrepancies and incoherencies in various ways. The paper first suggests interpreting the novel within the context of the complete Strickerian oeuvre. Moreover, it sees the novel and particularly the narrator's comments as a reflection on the "sins of the tongue", which were discussed at length by the theologians of the era.
