English summary: The most striking feature of Michael Psellos' "Chronographia," one of the major works of byzantine historiography, is the intensive presence of its author's personality, manifested by long autobiographical digressions. This feature has been criticised by many scholars as a violation of traditional historiographical rules. However, a thorough analysis of the text shows that the autobiographical elements of the "Chronographia" are well integrated in its narrative structure and fulfil carefully calculated functions. Psellos' self-presentation in his "Chronographia" is not a literary fault but a successful innovation. German description: Die "Chronographia" des Michael Psellos, ein Hauptwerk der byzantinischen Historiographie, zeichnet sich durch die ungewohnlich starke Prasenz der Person ihres Autors in seinem Werk aus, unter anderem in langen autobiographischen Exkursen. Diese Erscheinung ist oft als eine unzulassige Uberschreitung der historiographischen Gattungsgrenzen verworfen worden. Dabei erweist eine Analyse der narrativen Strukturen des Werkes seinen autobiographischen Aspekt als zentrales Element fur den gesamten Aufbau und die Okonomie des Textes. Psellos' Autobiographismus ist nicht als literarischer Fehltritt zu missbilligen, sondern als gelungene literarische Innovation zu wurdigen.
