抄録: Collective memory is an interdisciplinary concept in which scholars from various fields such as archaeology, historical science, sociology, religious studies, and literary studies are interested. It assumes that past events are remembered not only by an individual but also by a group, e.g. citizens, students, and religious community. The idea is also important in the study of legend because a legend is a narrative, staging collective imagery of past forms and events as a "true story". The kidnap in the Pied Piper in Hamelin and magic acts of Dr. Faust are good examples. In principle, legend requires people to believe its contents. Consequently, it can be considered that the formation of tradition through narratives is the process of remembering the "past" in collectivity, in which descriptions of a legend does not always coincide with actual historical events. In the study of memory, it is stated that remembrance, whether individual or collective, is not a mirror of the past. In the remembering process, the one select particular information and bind it together in narrative structure. At the same time, the one omit much of "unimportant" information and may insert fictitious components. Such constructed remembrance relates not only to the past but also to individuals and groups of today. Interestingly, a legend is also created in the selecting process of information. For example, personal documents that witness historical events, famous figures, and narrative motives of old folktales as well as stereotypes of hero, heroin, magician, king, and outlaw can be the selected information in this context. In addition, conspicuous locations of circumstances such as strange objects in the nature, ruins and buildings like the Mouse Tower at Bingen may be of this category. Those information are bound together in narrative structure, through which a legend is further toned with fictitious components. Nevertheless, a narrative moralises and warns people as well as telling the sense of value through exemplification of a "true story". Wolfgang Seidenspinner (1991) briefly argued about relations between collective memory and oral legend, focusing on the works of Maurice Halbwachs and Jan Assmann. Also, Aleida Assmann (2007) suggested some key concepts such as storage memory and function memory in the study of collective memory. Adopting the latter theory, this paper analyses the formation of the Legend of Dr. Faust, the well-known written legend in the sixteenth century, as a clue to understand the nature of remembrance and oblivion in collectivity. Moreover, the paper attempts to reveal positionality of legend in collective memory, making reference to Astrid Erll's theory (2005) in which she discussed the function of literature in collective remembrance. In addition, other theories by scholars such as Lutz Röhrich (1958, 1971), Rolf Wilhelm Brednich (1990, 1991), Jan Harold Brunvand (1989), Halbwachs (2006), Jan Assmann (2007) and Peter Burk (2005) will be referred in the argument.
