Wolfenbüttel HAB Cod. Guelf. 254 Helmst now catalogued

This manuscript, dated c. 825, contains the only manuscript of ten letters of pope Leo III (795-816) to Charlemagne, as well as a polyptych known as the Brevium exempla, and the famous Capitulare de Villis, a document detailing the administration of Carolingian royal estates.

The images currently on the project website are placeholders, which will soon link directly to the Wolfenbüttel HAB.  At the moment, the full-resolution images can be found at the Wolfenbüttel HAB website.
