The Comburg manuscript (Stuttgart, Württembergische Landesbibliothek, Cod. poet. et. phil. 2°22) is a composite volume, with six parts. Five of these six parts contain more than one text. This article deals with the question whether the content of each of these six parts exhibits coherence, or results merely from chance. In order to answer this question, I have, for each separate text, examined the textual tradition in other manuscripts. In this way one sees in what other contexts the texts appear. From this it emerges that the textual cohesion of each of the six parts of the Comburg manuscript is not always obvious, but that - when considered as a group - the combination of the six parts indeed shows coherence.
