Zwei karolingische Fragmente von nicht identifizierten Predigtsammlungen (München, BSB, clm 29319/3 und 29319/40)

Lukas Dorfbauer
The present paper offers discussions of two Carolingian fragments of sermon collections now at the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich (clm 29319/3 and 29319/40), based on the first identification of their contents. It is demonstrated that clm 29319/3 originally belonged to the same book as the liturgical fragment clm 29304/1; this lost book, which served as exemplar for the famous Benedictionale Frisingense (clm 6430), may turn out to be of major importance for the study of...

Psalms and Psalters in the Manuscript Fragments Preserved in the Abbey Library of Sankt Gallen

María Adelaida Andrés Sanz
This study focuses on three series of manuscript fragments dating from the seventh to the tenth century where passages of the Psalter were copied. Most of the fragments are currently preserved at the Library Abbey of Sankt Gallen, and their digital reproductions are available on Fragmentarium: Cod. Sang. 1395 II, pp. 336-361 [F-4b1o]; Cod. Sang. 1395 III, pp. 368-391 [F-jo7w]; and Cod. Sang. 1397 V, pp. 1-12, 37-42 [F-i8qo]. These fragments provide the basis for...

In situ Manuscript Fragments in the Incunables of the Bodleian Library, Oxford: A Fragmentarium Case Study

Ruth Mullett
This paper discusses the objectives, methodology, and outcomes of the Fragmentarium case study to catalogue in situ manuscript fragments in the incunables of the Bodleian Library, Oxford. Drawing on summary information provided within the 2005 incunable catalogue, A Catalogue of Books Printed in the Fifteenth Century now in the Bodleian Library, the descriptions produced consider these fragments within their functional contexts. Here, the author argues that considering in situ fragments as constituent parts of their...

Reading Monastic History in Bookbinding Waste: Collecting, digitizing and interpreting fragments from Mondsee Abbey

Ivana Dobcheva
Shortly after its foundation in 748, the Benedictine monastery of Mondsee became an important centre for book production in Upper Austria. The librarians renewed their holdings over several phases of increased activity. In the fifteenth century, old and outdated books fell into the hands of the monastic binders, who cut up and reused them as binding waste for new manuscripts, incunabula or archival materials. These fragments often offer the only clues we have for the...

Fragments and Fragmentology

William Duba & Christoph Flüeler
The name ‘Fragmentology’ implies a field of study, with a subject matter and a methodology of its own. This journal, Fragmentology, aims to serve that field, and, through its publications, document how fragment studies fit in the humanities.

Reconstructing Burnt Anglo-Saxon Fragments in the Cotton Collection at the British Library

Andrew Dunning, Christina Duffy & Alison Hudson
The British Library conducted a Fragmentarium case study in 2017 to explore the possibilities for improving access to burnt fragments of Anglo-Saxon manuscripts from the Cotton Collection. Multispectral imaging and analysis undertaken by Dr Christina Duffy at the British Library Conservation Centre has revealed more details from the surviving fragments than are otherwise visible. The complexity of multispectral imaging presents challenges for online display and long-term storage that need to be addressed in future manuscript...

Eine Überlieferung der Paulusbriefe um das Jahr 800 aus dem Kloster Mondsee. Eine Rekonstruktion aus 211 Fragmenten

Larissa Rasinger
In the fifteenth century a ca.-800 copy of the Pauline epistles was cut up in the Austrian Benedictine monastery of Mondsee and reused as binding material. Most of the fragments were detached in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and are today kept in the Austrian National Library as Cod. Ser. n. 2065, but some are still in situ in their host volumes. The large number of surviving pieces –211 in all – enabled a reconstruction...

Manuscript Fragments in the University and Provincial Library of Tyrol at Innsbruck

Claudia Sojer & Walther Neuhauser
This article presents an overview of the current state of knowledge concerning detached and in situ fragments in the collection of the University and Provincial Library of Tyrol (ULB Tyrol). The detached fragments were removed in several different phases from manuscripts and printed volumes, and, at the turn of the twentienth century, were assembled in a separate collection, which now numbers 233 shelfmarks, some of which contain as many as 26 individual pieces. A current...

Ein Berliner Handschriftenfragment der Vita Sancti Columbae Adamnani

Stefanie Bellach
A hitherto unknown fragment of an early eleventh-century manuscript of the Vita sancti Columbae Adamnani has been discovered in the Secret State Archives, Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation in Berlin. Written in late-Carolingian minuscule (“schrägovaler Stil”), it contains chapters 37, 38, 40 and 41 of the second book of the Vita and reveals references to a different redaction of the text.

A Seventeenth-Century Treasure Hunter in the Rubble of a Ninth-Century Library: Gathering Fragments and the History of Libraries

Pierre Chambert-Protat
Abstract: Among the few major Carolingian libraries that are rather well preserved, Lyon’s Cathedral Chapter Library presents a specific challenge: its fragmentation and dispersion have long hindered studies on its constituent manuscripts, because they were scattered across distant libraries. Nowadays, digitization lifts the greater part of the material obstacles, and virtual reconstructions makes it possible to study damaged manuscripts almost as if their scattered fragments were still preserved together. While accompanying a few such reconstructions...

Fragments and Fakes: The Arbor consanguinitatis of the Fondation Martin Bodmer and a Contemporary Forgery

Christoph Flüeler & William Duba
A tree of consanguinity (arbor consanguinitatis) contained in a manuscript published on e-codices (Cologny, Fondation Martin Bodmer, Cod. Boder 28), served as the model for a new class of forgery. An analysis of the Bodmer leaf in the context of other arbores consanguinitatis shows how the leaf relates to tradition; an examination of the leaf’s history and provenance reveals that the leaf was mutilated, probably in the mid-twentieth century. The forgery is proven to be...

Membra disiecta from a Transylvanian Antiphonal in Budapest and Cluj

Gabriella Gilányi & Adrian Papahagi
This article discusses four fragments from a fifteenth-century antiphonal with Hungarian chant notation. Two of these membra disiecta are kept at the National Archives of Hungary, and at the Library of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in Budapest, and are well-known to scholars of medieval music and liturgy.

Manuscript Fragments in Greek Libraries

Athina Almpani & Agamemnon Tselikas
A case study on fragments in Greek manuscript collections was conducted at the Center for History and Palaeography of the National Bank of Greece Cultural Foundation. The majority of the manuscripts for the study come from hard-to-reach monastic libraries and were microfilmed by the Center. The study focused on a selection of collections, including the library of the Monastery of Hozoviotissa (Amorgos Island, Cyclades), the Patriarchal library of Alexandria (Egypt), the library of the Monastery...
