Invitation forwards God court
Supporting "well medleys" are suggested throughout:
Hoexter went grinding grain to the Amelungsmuehle; on the way back want to rest itself it a little at the pond in the Lau. There Ms of the wanting mountain, which Godelheim faces, came down, stepped to it and spoke: "two buckets bring me fully water above on the Stolle (point) of the wanting mountain, then are you good reward to have." It carried the water up for it; however she spoke above: "morning around this hour comes back and bring along the shrubs flowers, which the shepherd of the Osterberge on its hat carries, but watches that you it with quality only from it attain." The man demanded the other day the flowers of the east hereditary suppl. shepherd and received her, but only after vielem asking. Whereupon it went again to the Stolle of the wanting mountain, there stood Ms, led it to an iron Tuere and spoke: "stops the flower shrubs before the lock." As he did, jumped up equal Tuere, and they stepped inside; there small a maennlein before the table, whose beard had grown completely by the stone table, sat however stood large, over-powerful treasures in the mountain cave. The shepherd put before joy his flower shrubs on the table and caught on to also fill the bags gold. Ms however spoke to him: "do not forget the best!" The man looked around and believed, meant with it a large kronleuchter would be, how it seized however after, came out under the table a hand and struck it in the face. Ms spoke again: "do not forget the best!" It had however nothing as the treasures in the sense, and to the flower shrubs it did not think at all. When it had filled its bags, it wanted again away, hardly however was it to the door outside, then it slammed shut with terrible cracking. Now want it its treasures to unload, but it did not have anything as paper in the bag; there the flower shrubs occurred to it, and now it saw that this went the best been, and sadly the mountain down to house. Wernigerode is in a Tale a recess in stony ground, which is called the wine cellar hole and where large treasures to lie to be supposed. Many years ago a poor shepherd, a pious and quiet man, feasted there his herd. Once, as it evenly evening will wanted, stepped a greiser man to it and spoke: "consequence me, then I want you treasures to show, of it you take myself can, as much you desire have." The shepherd left the guard of the herd to the dog and followed the old person. At a small distance the soil opened itself, it suddenly occurred both and rose into the depth, until they came to a Gemach, in which the largest treasures of gold and noble stones up-piled up lay. The shepherd selected himself a gold lump, and someone, which he did not see, spoke to him: "bring the gold to the goldschmied in the city, that you will plentifully pay." Whereupon its leader led it again to the exit, and the shepherd did, as him was been called, and received from the goldschmied a large quantity of money. Pleased it brought it to its father, this spoke: to rise "attempts again into the depth." - ", father", answered the shepherd, "I had there my gloves lie-let, want it to go along, then I want to get her." At the night they opened both, were the place and the opened soil and arrived at the underground treasures. There it lay still everything like that first times, also the gloves of the shepherd was; both loaded so much into their bags, when they could carry, and went then again out, on which the entrance with loud cracking behind them closed. They wanted to dare the following night it to third times, but them looked for for a long time back and forth, without discovering the place of the entrance or also only one trace. There the old man advanced toward them and spoke to the shepherd: "you would not have carried forward but would not have down lie-let your gloves, then you would have found third times the entrance also to, because three times he should be you accessible and opened; now however it is invisible and locked you on always." Spirit, it is said, knows what left in its dwelling by terrestrial humans, not kept and do not have rest, to it those again to itself taken.
Wernigerode nearby Ilse castle at the foot of breaking into and by the Ilse is bespuelt. Opposite it a similar rock, whose layers fit this and seem during an earth vibration from it to be separate.
With the Suendflut fled two loving breaking into too, in order to escape from the ever more highly rising general inundation. Eh it still the same reached and straight on another rock together stood, split for such and wanted to separate them. On the left side, turned, the virgin stood for breaking into; on the right the young man, and fell with one another they umschlungen into the tides. The virgin was called Ilse. Still it unlocks all mornings the Ilse stone to bathe itself in the Ilse. Only few is vergoennt it to see it but who knows it, it praises. Once she found early in the morning a charcoal burner, greeted her friendly and followed their signs to before the rock; before the rock it removed its satchel from it, went inside thereby and returned it filled. But it instructed the charcoal burner, it should it only in its hut open. Weight was noticeable to it, and as he on the Ilse bridge was, could he longer contain, did not open themselves the satchels and saw acorns and Tannaepfel. It vibrated it indignantly into the river, as soon as they affected however the stones of the Ilse, heard it a ringing and saw with frights that it had buried gold. Now the carefully kept remnants in the corners of the bag made it however still richly enough. - after another legend lock on the Ilse stone before time of a resin king, who had a very beautiful daughter named Ilse, stood. Near with it lived a witch, whose daughter looked ugly over all masses. A quantity of suitors recruited Ilse, but nobody desired the witch daughter; there the witch zuernte and turned by charms the lock in rock, at whose foot she attached one only the king daughter visible Tuere. From this door still jetzo all mornings those walks bewitched Ilse and bathes themselves in the river, which is called after it. If humans are so lucky and if she sees in the bath, then she leads him also into the lock, regales him koestlich and dismisses him plentifully presented. But the envious witch makes that she is visible only on some days of the year in the bath. Only that is able to release it, which bathes with it at same time in the river and at beauty and virtue resembles her. Ballenstedt and Harzgerode in the Selketal the people shows to a high, by a column distinguished rock, to a recess in the rock, some similarity with the Fusstapfe of humans has and eighty to one hundred the foot further to a second Fusstapfe. The legend of it is however different.
A Huenin or a giant daughter was issued themselves once on the back of the resin, from that Peter mountains coming. When it had reached the rock, now over the metallurgical plants, it saw its Gespielin, which signed it, on the point of the ramming mountain. For a long time it stood in such a way hesitating, because its location and the next mountain summit separated a broad valley. It remained here so for a long time that its Fusstapfe pressed itself inch low in rock, about which heutzutag still the weak traces too long are. Their hesitating laughed hoehnisch a farmhand of the people people, who inhabited this area, and which with Harzgerode plowed. The Huenin noticed that, stretched its hand and main header the farmhand including plow and horses up, took everything together into their upper garb and jumped thereby over the valley away, and in some steps she had reached her Gespielin.
Often one hears to tell: The king daughter came and on the jenseitige Gebirg wanted driven in their car. Immediately she did to the cars together with the horses into the apron and jumped from a mountain after the other one.
Finally the kicks of a Bauerdirne are attributed, which made for a shepherd its lover, beyond the jump and arose with the beginning so by force that its trace was imprinted. Also a goat support seems to have been here in the play.
Lausitz unfern the boehmischen border a steep rock, Oybin protrudes mentioned, on which one tends to show and of it tell the young remote jump: Vorzeiten came a virgin into the mountain monastery destroyed now to the attendance. A brother should lead around it and show it the courses and miracles of the rock area; there their beauty woke suendhafte desire in it, and culpably it stretched its arms after it. It however fled and fled, pursued by the monk, the devoured path along; suddenly it stood before a deep gap of the mountain and jumped keusch and courageously into the abyss. Angels of the gentleman seized and carried them gently without some damage down there.
Others maintain: A hunter saw changing a beautiful farmer girl on the Oybin and on her loose-hurried. Like a hunted deer she fell the ravine by the rock courses, opened before her eyes, and she jumped intact down up to the soil.
Still different report: It bet a rapid girl with its Gespielinnen to away-jump over the gap. In the jump however their foot from the smooth slipper glitschte, and it would have been zerschmettert, where it would everywhere have protected and completely gently into the depth would have down-brought not fortunately its hoar frost skirt. Koeslin in Pommern one shows a Huenenberg, and one excavated a large horn, a large sword and tremendous bones there. Also in Vorpommern before times are to have been giants. In the area of grab forest one let kleuben 1594 such Huenengraeber "and plane off", there found stone-cutters the bodies, eleven and probably sixteen shoe long, and jugs beside it. Like it however to another ditch, which previous came directly, and wanted him also to try, after its giving a Getuemmel, as if something rushed ago and danced with keys around her, is to be heard to be able. There they stood off from disturbing the grave. Mummelsee lies in the deep Murgtale of ring surrounded by former castles; the remnants the black head and sea-castle stand for former celebrations against each other. The legend told that each day, when dawn veils the mountain points, of which side of the Seeburger of burghofes thirteen pieces rotwild to a Pfoertchen in here -, over the place and to opposite wingless burgtore out-hurry. Experienced ones game contactors got one, but never more from these animals always into their force. The other balls went wrongly or drove into the dogs. No hunter shot since the time at another animal, than in this course ran and itself by size and beauty distinguished. From this daily course however the Friday is excluded, which received therefore the still now usual name Jaegersabbat and enters at which nobody the sea-castle. But on this day, around the midnight, another feature is seen. Twelve nuns, in her center a bleeding man, into whose body twelve dolche are, come by the small forest gate into the yard and change quietly large burgtore too. In this instant portals a similar row, consisting in twelve completely black men of that, appear from whose bodies sparks spray and burning everywhere to marks out-blaze; they change closely at the nuns and their bloody companion past, in their center however creep a female shape. This face explains the legend in the following way: In the sea-castle twelve brothers, lived robbery counts, and with them a good sister; on the black head however a noble knight with twelve sisters. That the twelve Seeburger kidnapped the twelve sisters of the black head at one night, on the other hand in addition, the black head the only sister of the twelve robbery counts happened into its force got. Both parts met one another in the level of the Murgtales, and a fight developed, in which the Seeburger received the upper hand and which Schwarzkopfer captures. They led it on the castle, and everyone of the Zwoelfen pushed it a dolch before the eyes of his dying loving, their sister, into the chest. Soon after the twelve robbed sisters from their Gemaechern freed themselves, looked for the twelve dolche from the chest of their brother and killed at the night all murder counts. They fled after the act, however by the farmhands were overtaken and killed. When ward, there one saw the lock destroyed by fires on that the walls, in which the virgins geschmachtet, twelve female shapes, everyone open with a child flax on the arm, stepped out, walked to the Mummelsee and fell themselves into its tides. Afterwards the water devoured the destroyed castle, in which shape it still protrudes.
A poor man, who lived often in the proximity of the Mummelsees and for the spirit of the water it had gebetet lost his wife by the death of evening after heard it in the chamber, where she lay on splinters, a quiet music sound. It opened a little the door and look and saw six virgins, who stood with light flax in the hands around the dead one; in the following evening young men, who were awake with the corpse and regarded them very sadly, were just as many. Leuneburg in Prussia was a very swift thief, who could steal a horse, as careful one was also. Now a village minister a beautiful horse, which he sells to the fish master to meadow castle, but yet had not granted. There the thief, he bet wanted to also steal this and stop after; but the minister experienced it and let it keep in such a way and lock that he could not come to it. Meanwhile the minister with the horse rode once into the city, there came the thief also in beggar dresses with two sprags into the lodging. And as it notices the fact that the minister wanted to be almost on, makes he before on the field, throws themselves the sprags on a tree, puts under it and expects the minister. This comes after, probably bezecht, finds the beggar lies there and says: "brother, up, up! It comes along the night, goes to people, the wolves would like you to tear up." The thief answered: "oh, dear gentleman! Evenly here were bad boys, those to me my sprags on the tree threw, now must I spoil all here and die, because without sprags I can come nirgend." The minister pities its, jumps of horses, gives it for the Schalk at the zuegel to hold, takes his riding skirt off, puts him on the horse and rises then to the tree to gain the sprags. Meanwhile the thief jumps on the horse, runs of it, throws the farmer dresses away and lets the minister to foot home go. The male nurse experiences, lets this theft the thief seize and at the Galgen henken. Everyone knew to tell now of his cunningness and agility.
Unity mark rode several noblemen, probably bezecht, at the Galgen past, talked about the thief art and laughed at it. One of them was also wild and spoettischer humans, called up: "O you swift and intelligent thief, you must know much! Come on Thursday with yours associate with me with guest and teaches themselves also cunningness." The others laughed.
On Thursday, when the nobleman had drunk the night over, was it long sleeping, there comes the thieves bell nine of the morning with their chains into the yard, goes to the woman, greets it and to say, the Junker it had asked it to guest, should it up wake. Its frightens it hard, goes forwards the Junkers bed and says: "oh! I said you long, you with your drinking and spoettischen speeches dishonor would insert, rises and receive your guests;" and tells, what they would have said in the room.
It frightens, rises, is called it welcomely and that they should set themselves. It lets meals, as much it in hurry is able, which everything disappears speak. Meanwhile the nobleman says to the horse thief: "dear one, it was gelachet much your agility, but jetzund is not ridiculous mir's, but surprises me, as you are so swift been, there you rough humans nevertheless seem." That answers: "the Satan, when he sees that humans of God leave word, can one easily swift make." The nobleman asked other things, those answered until the meal was decided. There they grant up, thanked it and spoke: "in such a way we ask you also to God himmlischem court to the wood, there we for our measurement budget of the world killed; there are you with us to take up the court of temporal disgrace, and this is to be heut over four weeks." And separated thus from it.
The nobleman frightened much and ward violently betruebt. He said it to many people, the one spoke this, the other one that one to it. It however troestete itself its that it nobody somewhat taken and that that day fell on all holy day, on which for the celebration one not to arrange tends. But it remained at home and loaded guests, such a thing would happen that it would have certification, he would be not to get along. Because the Rauberei was particular at that time in the country, Gregor Matternen Reiterei, from which the Hauskomtur D Eberhard von Emden erstochen had. The-half the Komtur instruction got, where such riders and Kompans would be to be found, one should it catch and arrange without some audience. Now the murderer was found out, and the Komtur hastened after it with the Seinigen. And because that nobleman the last day was and in addition all holy celebration, thought it, wanted itself now more waer it freely, once against evening on the long a seats somewhat erlustigen and rode in the field. Whereas as its of the Komturs people become more aware of, them, it deucht are the murderer horse and dress, and ride immediately on him too. The rider places himself to the resistance and ersticht a young nobleman, the Komturs friend, and becomes therefore imprisoned. They bring it before Leuneburg, give a Litauen to money, hang it to its guests at the Galgen. And wanted it not to help that he said, it would come from its dwelling only ridden, but must hear: "with it away, eh others come and its take care of, because he wants to only thus dissuade himself from!"
