New textual witnesses found by R. Deutinger

New textual witnesses found by R. Deutinger

In the new issue of the Deutsches Archiv (74/1, 2018, pp. 177-191) Roman Deutinger has drawn attention to a hitherto unknown textual witnesses of Leges texts. Deutinger discovered transcriptions of the Lex Baiuvariorum, the Lex Salica and the Lex Francorum Chamavorum in the collections of the scholar Wolfgang Hunger (1511-1555). Especially the transmission of the Lex Francorum Chamavorum is a great asset, since only three manuscripts of this Lex were known so far.

After the Bibliotheca legum has commemorated its 5th anniversary rather quietly in 2017, this milestone is now also to be celebrated externally with a “facelift” in the new year. The look of the site will change over the next few weeks or months; it will become more sophisticated and modern. Since these revisions take some time, it can happen that the site is not available at short notice or not all functionalities are available. We endeavour to keep these restrictions as low as possible and also to inform you about the progress.

Recently, an essay has also been written which reflects on the genesis of the database and its further development. This will hopefully be published in the “Zeitschrift für digitale Geisteswissenschaften” (ZfdG) in the near future.
