Ad fontes – Lex Salica codices of Bamberg State Library

During a field trip to southern German libraries, the three Lex Salica manuscripts Can. 12, Jur. 35 and (ad) Bibl. 30c of Bamberg State Library were subject to a thorough examination.

We were successfull in reconstructing some etched part of the Salic Law in codex Jur. 35 (foll. 5r and 5v). The order of the etched titles (in comparison to the relevant edition by Eckhardt) is as follows:

5r
2,12
2,13
2,14
2,15
2,16
2,17

5v
2,10

Codex Can. 12 also carries an etched part after the XX. title of Hincmar of Reims. Although it was not possible to identify the erased text, it can be said with some certainty that it is not the title following in the MGH edition).
