E.T.A. Hoffmann’s large corpus, which consists of narrative fiction as well as theoretical texts, is rich in heterogeneous anthroponyms, many of which are present in the Nachtstücke, his famous collection of fantastic tales. Ignaz Denner an d Die Jesuiterkirche, two tales belonging to the first part of the collection, are linked in a way that is not immediately recognizable, and emerges only in the course of an anthroponomastic analysis.
