Stemma of the Ansegis collection

Stemma of the Ansegis collection

The edition of Ansegis’ capitulary collection is a real treasure trove for anyone interested in the transmission of legal manuscripts in the Carolingian period. With utmost meticulousness Gerhard Schmitz has analyzed the manuscripts of the collection and their textual peculiarities. He convincingly demonstrated that the collection was rapidly disseminated throughout the Frankish Empire and that many early witnesses have been lost. What is missing in Schmitz’s edition, however, is a simplifying stemma that would allow a quick overview of the textual transmission. Such a stemma has now been published for the Capitularia project.
