The story of Amicus and Aurelius was told in many European languages from the late 11th century until after the late Middle Ages. It revolves around two friends who cannot be told apart. The intense bonding between them is stronger than all other social demands and codes of conduct. This study develops the common basic structure of the story and differences in the medieval versions of it. The connection between friendship, force and identity forms the focus of the analysis.
