This session focuses on manuscripts and their models as working material for medieval scribes and witnesses of early medieval culture. Analyzing the St Gall charter material, the first paper will explore different uses of early St Gall formulae (collections) such as the so-called Collectio Sangallensis in the later 9th and 10th centuries. The second paper will investigate the medieval library catalogues as historical sources about the way, how medieval clerics used normative manuscripts. Focusing on the inventories of southern Germany, it will investigate the accessibility of these manuscripts, how they were organized and used. The third paper will consider the production of homiletic manuscripts in Fulda during the second half of the 9th century: first, all the homiletic manuscripts that are copied or composed at the library of Fulda will be brought together; second, it is questioned if the material of Fulda differs to that of other eastern Frankish libraries.
