Abstract

The so called Prague sacramentary is a Bavarian manuscript which contains various texts (a sacramentary, a penitential book, the so-called Nota historica, and a short text about the six ages of the world). Moreover it is closely related to another manuscript containing saints’ lives. This complex handbook was compiled in the beginning of the 790s, most probably in the context of the uprising of Pippin the Hunchback. The three papers will investigate different aspects of this manuscript.
