make it possible to conduct a historical analysis of their community, and the relations between them and the Christians. The Carolingian kings considered the Jews a positive populating element that must be looked after and protected. In the first half of the ninth century, Emperor Louis the Pious (814–840) granted privileges to individual Jewish merchants and their families. 12 He undertook to guarantee

One cannot rule out the possibility that it was prepared with a specific ruler in mind. However, there is no evidence that associates it with either Louis the Pious, or one of his sons. 160 Yitzhak Hen lay on his shoulders as God’s chosen representative.51 This is exactly how Alcuin understood it even before the imperial coronation, when he wrote to Charlemagne: ‘What glory will be yours, most blest king, when all these

two hands working closely together, which is a feature of both the Priscian manuscript (Paris, BnF, lat. 7496) and the manuscript of Lupus’s correspondence (Paris, BnF, lat. 2858), can be matched with numerous other examples from marginal annotation practices. Florus, deacon of Lyon in the turbulent times of the mid-ninth century when Agobard was banned and Amalarius appointed by Louis the Pious, has been shown to have run the copying processes of his scriptorium with a strict hand.27 He directed, supervised and corrected the work of his scribes with a minute

According to Paul the Deacon, writing over two centuries after the event, the fleeing monks had the presence of mind to take the most important Benedictine items with them, including a copy of the Rule of Benedict, some other writings, and measures of bread and wine and other utensils.4 See especially M. de Jong, The Penitential State.

and insular performances of Palm Sunday. Its origins assisted in establishing its authority: medieval accounts such as Durand’s liturgical commentaries and the Golden Legend tell how Theodulf of Orléans (d. 821) heard the Palm Sunday procession from his cell, during his imprisonment by Louis the Pious. He composed the Gloria laus on the spot, and the hymn had led to his release from prison and restoration to his episcopal see. 52 The hymn constitutes a unique quasi-biblical creation, whose subtle dialogue with biblical language, text

Harald Bluetooth’s aspirations as sponsor of a literate Christian culture had been fully realised in the reign of this successor. Scandinavia was already acquainted with writing, and with Christianity. In 831 the missionary Ansgar was despatched from Birka in Sweden bearing a message written in runes by King Björn’s own hand, informing the Carolingian emperor Louis the Pious of his mission’s success. 17 The substantial corpus of rune-sticks from Bergen and Hedeby, extending through to the fourteenth century, bears witness to high levels of pragmatic lay literacy in
