From Peutinger’s library…

Konrad Peutinger had in his library a copy of a no longer existing Lex Baiuvariorum manuscript. In the recently published catalog for the exhibition “Gesammeltes Gedächtnis. Konrad Peutinger und die kulturelle Überlieferung im 16. Jahrhundert” (Collected memory . Konrad Peutinger and the cultural tradition in the 16th century), ed . Reinhard Laube and Helmut Zäh, Veronika Lukas mentions this codex, which today is 2° Cod August 389 in the Augsburg State and City Library. It has now also been added to the Biblioteca as the 50th Lex Baiuvariorum (and overall 321st) manuscript.

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:



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).
