No manuscript with runes has received so much attention as this Vienna codex, and for various reasons: it contains an important collection of Alcuin's letters. Compiled during his lifetime and perhaps by no one less than his pupil Arn, then Archbishop of Salzburg. In it is preserved some fascinating Gothic material.

We have 1 facsimile edition of the manuscript "Letters of Alcuin and other documents": Die Alkuin-Briefe und andere Traktate facsimile edition, published by Akademische Druck- u. Verlagsanstalt (ADEVA), 1969

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.
