I'm using the epigraphs package, but try to redefine the epigraphs environment (to later on add something to it, e.g. a page break before). So I thought I do it like this:


But I get a few errors:

l.4 \end{epigraphs}
LaTeX Error: \begin{minipage} on input line 1 ended by \end{epigraphs}.

l.4 \end{epigraphs}                   
Missing } inserted.

The code runs without the definition of renewenvironment, but otherwise not. Am I doing something wrong here?

You have saved the begin code but not the end code of the original environment you need

Ahhh! Thanks a lot! What a stupid mistake! I started with renewcommand and so I completely forgot about it! – navige Jan 8 '13 at 11:52
