Starting from the new interpretation of the biblical and patristic references in Otfrid's prayer for inspiration, the present article puts forward the thesis that Otfrid, by paralleling his invocatio to the Gospel reading at mass, intends an analogy between his 'Liber Evangeliorum' and the liturgical Gospel book. Based on this liturgical presentation of the text, the relationship between the, Liber Evangeliorum' and its model, the text of the gospels, can be defined more precisely; the analysis opens new perspectives on the question whether Otfrid's work was inspired by the pericops.

German
Im vorliegenden Beitrag wird über die Neubewertung der biblischen und patristischen Bezüge in Otfrids Inspirationsbitte und über die bisher übersehene Parallele der Invocatio zur gottesdienstlichen Evangelienlesung die These entwickelt, dass Otfrid seinen 'Liber Evangeliorum' mit dem liturgischen Evangeliar analogisiert. Von diesem Befund einer liturgischen Inszenierung des Textes aus lässt sich das Verhältnis des Evangelienbuchs zu seinem Vorbild, dem Text des Evangeliums, genauer bestimmen; es ergeben sich auch neue Perspektiven für die Frage, ob Otfrid sich an den Perikopen orientiert hat.
