plan of the work
The Chartae Latinae Antiquiores are meant to provide scholars of various branches of learning concerning Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages – diplomatics scholars, historians, paleographers, jurists, linguists, topographers, anthropologists – with an abstract, an edition, a description of external and internal features, a bibliography and a facsimile real size reproduction of all the surviving documents among those produced until the end of the 9th century.
The first series of the Chartae Latinae Antiquiores (ChLA), founded and directed by Albert Bruckner and Robert Marichal, has been completed. It consists of forty-nine volumes and it includes papyrus and parchment documents produced prior to the year 800. This achievement was made possible by the active contribution of a large group of qualified scholars. The second series (ChLA2), which avails itself of the cooperation of likewise qualified specialists, starts with volume 50 and was founded by Guglielmo Cavallo and Giovanna Nicolaj. It aims at publishing all the documents of the 9th century, beginning from those conserved in Italian archives and libraries and then extending to other countries in Europe and in the U.S.A.
Scientific facsimile edition of all Latin documents up to the year 900. Format: 32 x 44 cm. Each volume contains between 100 to 160 pages, most documents are shown in their original size.
Covers are made with half parchment.
The plan is to publish three new volumes every year.
