The Capitulary of Manors is a manuscript produced in Germany during the reign of the emperor Charlemagne, sometime between the late eighth and early ninth centuries. The unillustrated book describes estate management and revenue collection and is thus an important record of Charlemagne's rule during the Carolingian administrative reforms. Although the manuscript is well known to scholars of the early Middle Ages, its complex arrangement of topics and themes have eluded an interpretation of logical order. The administrative records are preceded by letters from Pope Leo III (d. 816) to Charlemagne.

International social justice movements and the debates that ensued prompted us to start considering the contents of our website from a critical point of view. This has led us to acknowledge that most of the texts in our database are Western-centered. We have asked the authors of our content to be aware of the underlying racial and cultural bias in many scholarly sources, and to try to keep in mind multiple points of view while describing the manuscripts. We also recognize that this is yet a small, first step towards fighting inequality.

If you notice any trace of racist or unjust narratives in our communications, please help us be part of the change by letting us know.
