Vita Audoini , ch. 1, below, p. 153. A second life of Audoin, a redaction of the first written under Louis the Pious, purports to have more precise information.

people who may have stood for the settlement in some capacity. The same seems also to have been true in Alemannia. 71 Moreover, a capitulary of Emperor Louis the Pious defines ‘neighbours’ ( vicini ) as people living in the same county ( comitatus ), which is not exactly local. 72 When formularies require all the people living in a particular place ( ibidem conmanentes ) to come together before a judge, it was because these people had information relating to an incident, not because they formed a pre-existing legal community. 73 Most of these occasions could be

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
