English summary: Scholars have long noted the importance of ego-documents for the analysis of historic worldviews. Julia Haarmann offers the first thorough exploration of the Hebrew ego-document Yesh Manchilin, written by rabbi Pinchas Katzenellenbogen (1691-1767).

In ihrer Darstellung zeigt Julia Haarmann auf, wie die Verschriftlichung dieser Geschichte(n) als Mechanismus zur B
