A '''legend''' ([[Latin]], ''legenda'', "things to be read") is a [[narrative]] of human actions that are perceived both by teller and listeners to take place within human history and to possess certain qualities that give the tale [[verisimilitude (literature)|verisimilitude]]. Legend, for its active and passive participants includes no happenings that are outside the realm of "possibility", defined by a highly flexible set of parameters, which may include [[miracle]]s that are perceived as actually having happened, within the specific tradition of [[indoctrination]] where the legend arises, and within which it may be transformed over time, in order to keep it fresh and vital, and [[realism (arts)|realistic]]. A majority of legends operate within the realm of uncertainty, never being entirely believed by the participants, but also never being resolutely doubted. <ref>{{cite book||title=Folkloristics|year=1995|publisher=Indiana University Press|location=United States of America|isbn=0-253-32934-5|pages=p.7|author=Robert Georges and Michael Owens}}</ref>

The [[Brothers Grimm]] defined legend as [[folktale]] historically grounded.<ref>Norbert Krapf, ''Beneath the Cherry Sapling: Legends from Franconia'' (New York: Fordham University Press) 1988, devotes his opening section to distinguishing the [[genre]] of legend from other narrative forms, such as [[fairy tale]]; he "reiterates the Grimms' definition of legend as a folktale historically grounded", according to Hans Sebald's review in ''German Studies Review'' '''13'''.2 (May 1990), p 312.</ref> A modern [[folklore|folklorist]]'s professional definition of ''legend'' was proposed by Timothy R.

Legends are tales that, because of the tie to a historical event or location, are believable, though not necessarily believed. For the purpose of the study of legends, in the academic discipline of [[folkloristics]], the [[truth value]] of legends is irrelevant because, whether the story told is true or not, the fact that the story is being told at all allows scholars to use it as commentary upon the cultures that produce or circulate the legends.

[[Hippolyte Delehaye]], (in his Preface to ''The Legends of the Saints: An Introduction to Hagiography'', 1907) distinguished legend from [[mythology|myth]]: "The ''legend'', on the other hand, has, of necessity, some historical or topographical connection. It refers imaginary events to some real personage, or it localizes romantic stories in some definite spot."
