Capitularia - Edition of the Frankish Capitularies


The project is preparing a new edition of the Frankish capitularies, a pivotal corpus of legal sources from the European Middle Ages. More details on the project can be found here.

The project is part of the German Academies’ Programme since 2014. It is funded by the
North Rhine-Westphalian Academy of Sciences, Humanities and the Arts. As a long-term project it will run for 16 years with an endowment of € 5.28m. The director of the project is Karl Ubl, professor of early and high medieval history at the University of Cologne.

The edition is being prepared in close collaboration with the Monumenta Germaniae Historica (MGH) and the Cologne Center for eHumanities (CCeH). In addition, we cooperate with the Carolingian Canon Law Project (CCL) in Lexington (Kentucky) and the Computational Historical Semantics Project (CHS) in Frankfurt/Main.
