First of all, the above two template rules "slightly" overlap,
since "kapitel" is also a "node()".
You should use "priority" attributes to disjoint the rules
or reduce the first rule so as it be not applied to "kapitel"s.

Does this mean that you want to produce a copy
of the ENTIRE document for each "title" in it?
Then you should use a somewhat another approach.

As for the rules you specified, they indeed cause a loop
whenever a "kapitel" occurs inside a "title":
when the "apply-templates" inside your <p> works,
the rule for inner "kapitel"s are recursively applied,
thus working with all "titles" once again.
