The online search tool for the ChLA is back

The publisher of the Chartae Latinae Antiquiores had build an online tool to search the material, based on a few criteria such as dates, scribes, writing material or repository. It went offline as the publishing house closed, but thanks to the intervention of Giovanna Nicolaj and Cristina Mantegna, to the support of Benoit-Michel Tock and to the technical expertise of Guillaume Porte, it is now hosted on the digital edition platform of the ARCHE research groupe at the University of Strasbourg: ChLA

From the website:

The Chartae Latinae Antiquiores started in 1954, intended to edit texts, pictures and comments of all Latin charters prior to 800, and later until 900. The 118 volumes are an outstanding collection of facsimiles of those documents, a major source for the history of the Early Middle Ages, and especially for the study of palaeography and diplomatics.

For helping researchers to browse inside the more than 100 volumes and ca. 5000 charters, an interface was built by Lukas Gamper. It allows the possibility to find and sort charters by issuer, recipient, date, preservation…

Despite the end of the “ChLA adventure”, this interface is now available here!

In memoriam Giles Constable

We learned with grief that Giles Constable passed on January 17 of 2021, 91 years old. After  teaching during three decades at the University of Harvard from 1958 on, he was awarded the prestigious chair of professor in the School of Historical Studies at the Institute for Advanced Studies in Princeton in 1985. It is there that he organised, as a member of our Commission, a succesful colloquium on ‘La tradition des documents diplomatiques’ (published by A. J. Kosto – A. Winroth, Charters, Cartularies, and Archives: The Preservation and Transmission of Documents in the Medieval West, Toronto, Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies, 2002).  He was an influential explorer of the religious and cultural history of the twelth century, the 12th and 14th century crusading, the origins of monastic tithes, the Benedictine reform of the twelfth century, the history of Cluny. His kindness inspired many talented young scholars, and promoted their careers. In respect for his explicit wishes we have limited to this short, but sincere notice.

Walter Prevenier
