Capitularia - Edition of the Frankish Capitularies

New stemmata

Due to the large presumed losses in transmission, the dependencies of capitulary manuscripts are difficult to present in the form of a stemma. However, in two cases with extensive transmission, namely texts from the two major legislative initiatives of Louis the Pious of 818/819 (BK 139) and 829 (BK 191), the distribution paths from the Aachen court can be traced quite well. The two visualizations can be found in our “Resources” section under “Stemmata“.
