This paper deals with a Neo-Latin text, printed for a university graduation in 1705 in Graz, in which the author, Jesuit Anton Kiffer, lets members of the House of Habsburg and their allies write ten heroic epistles about the military victories of Austria during the War of the Spanish Succession in 1704, using Ovids Heroides as an example and glorifying the Habsburg family. The first part of the paper gives the theoretical background for understanding the text, starting with Ovid, the inventor of the genre, and including a summary of the research done so far on the reception of the Heroides by poets of the Society of Jesus. Up to now, scholars focused on the so called Heroides Sacrae with saints and martyrs as writers or addressees but mostly left aside letters with contemporary people as authors, who write about current events. Furthermore, an overview is given of the Jesuit University in Graz and the graduation ceremonies as well as the events of the War of the Spanish Succession. The second part of the paper focuses on the Epistolae Heroum et Heroidum themselves, analysing in what way the author used Ovids Heroides and transferred them to the new context of current events and how the House of Habsburg is glorified. The results are finally summarised in the last chapter. In addition, the appendix of the paper contains the full Latin text of the Epistolae Heroum et Heroidum as well as a German translation of the letters.
