Manuscript Summary
Carolingian collection of statutes produced in western France in Latin in the first quarter of the 9th century, includes the Lex Romana Visigothorum (collection of Roman laws enacted by the west Gothic King Alarich II.), the Lex Salica (book of Germanic law of Chlodwig, founder of the Frankish kingdom), and the Lex Alamannorum (foundation law of the Alamanni from the beginning of the 8th century). This item reached the monastery of St. Gall early on, was later removed, and was recorded as being in the possession of the scholar Aegidius Tschudi (1505-1572) during the 16th century. It was sold by his heirs in 1768 to the Abbey Library of St. Gall. (smu)
