Capitularia - Edition of the Frankish Capitularies

New feature for transcriptions

The heart of the individual manuscript pages are, in addition to the extensive information on the manuscript itself, the transcriptions of the capitularies. As a new feature, text sections provided with glosses or annotation signs (e.g. nota signs) are highlighted by a red G or N on a light background at the beginning of each section. Detailed information on the use of annotations or the wording of a specific gloss is provided by the editorial introduction of the respective manuscript and by notes in the transcriptions. Glossation and annotation signs are generally important for dealing with questions of the immediate reception of a text. The manuscript Paris Lat. 9654 is a particularly good example for the new feature.
