Capitularia - Edition of the Frankish Capitularies

Job vacancies and current events

As of September 1st and November 1st respectively, we are looking for new colleagues to join our team to work on the new edition of the capitularies. Detailed descriptions of the positions can be found on H-Soz-Kult.

On March 23rd and 24th the conference “Legal manuscripts of the 8th and 9th centuries” – organized by our colleagues Dominik Leyendecker and Dominik Trump – brought together experts of different aspects of law in the early Middle Ages. A review of the conference by Maximilian Lange and Clara Oepen can be found on H-Soz-Kult.

Of course the Capitularia-project was and will be featured at other events this year. From May 18th to 20th the conference “Ruling in hard times – Patterns of power and practices of goverment in the making of Carolingian Italy” took place in Trento. Our colleague Britta Mischke read a paper on the capitularies and diplomas of Lothar I. Furthermore, we are pleased to announce that almost the entire Capitularia-project will participate in the “International Medieval Congress” in Leeds (July 3rd-6th). Three sessions – including numerous papers by external speakers – are organized by the project. All papers discuss topics surrounding the capitularies of Louis the Pious. For further information see the programme.
