Miscellany manuscript with a list of books which probably originated from the Palace Library of Charlemagne. Moreover, this grammatical manuscript contains a carolingian commentary to the metrics of Servius, five poems of members of the court (Angilbert, Charlemagne, Paulus Diaconus, Fiducia) and others. This collective codex is a unique document from the time of Charlemagne. Written by various students of the Court School, it gives a glimpse into the development of the school by showing the kind of writings the arduous students used from their lectures of various read texts and how these eventually influenced the attainment of their own style of writing. How strong the interest of Charles I in education was, is apparent in the poem of Fiducia, who admits, because of his mistakes to have received a reprimand from the Kaiser himself. The wealth of grammatical reading texts found in this codex shows the diligent, but moreover the unequaled aspiration, pursuit, ambition in the early Carolingian times.

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.
