The sessions ‘Rules of Memory: Ruling with Memory’ deal with diverse forms of memory in the early Middle Ages (8th-10th centuries) and its relations to kingship and noble authority in the Carolingian realm. The main interest of the session is to inquire different sources like libri memoriales, charters, annals and so forth in reference to analyze their images of the past and their significance for the alliance of rule and memory during the Caroligian period.
