The Compendium Diez. B. Sant. 66 (Grammatici latini et catalogus librorum) is a miscellany manuscript that likely traces its origins to the esteemed Palace Library of Charlemagne. It is not merely a grammatical manual but also a treasure trove of Carolingian insights, featuring a commentary on Servius' metrics, as well as a collection of poems by court luminaries such as Angilbert, Charlemagne himself, Paulus Diaconus, and Fiducia, among others. This compendium stands as a testament to the era, curated by the diligent students of the Court School. It serves as a window into the pedagogical practices of the time, revealing the rigorous academic culture that shaped the unique literary styles of its scholars.

The passion of Charles I for education shines through in the candid verses of Fiducia's poem, wherein the poet confesses to having been chastised by the Emperor for his errors. Such anecdotes underscore the high standards of learning during that period. The rich array of grammatical texts preserved within this codex not only demonstrates the meticulous scholarship of the time but also reflects the unparalleled drive and ambition that characterized the intellectual spirit of the early Carolingian epoch.

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.
