This is the third of three sessions. The first paper engages with the study of Priscian's Grammar in (East) Carolingian schools and investigates features of the glosses which accompanied the main text and were afterwards included in larger glossaries. The second paper looks at the reception and political relevance of Isidore's Etymologies in East Francia, a region characterised by ethnic, legal, cultural and linguistic pluralism. The third paper analyses the working methods and intentions of the most renowned East-Frankish scholar, Rabanus Maurus, in his Commentary to Jeremiah's Lamentations. It investigates the different ways in which the work was reused, at times in opposition to the author's original intentions.
