Abstract

These papers explore the historiographical sources written in Alemannic and Bavarian scriptoria in the Carolingian and post-Carolingian epochs. Papers focus on historical writing surviving from St Gallen, Richenau, Murbach, and Einsiedeln as well as Bavarian monasteries, and on the manuscripts that mingle historical texts with other genres. Collectively, these sources are good examples for analysing the reception and adaption of the past, as well as the structuring of the present in a long term perspective.
