Over the past couple of years, I’ve been putting up draft translations of early medieval texts online. I produced most of them to support my Special Subject on Lothar II and Theutberga’s divorce case, as a supplement to the translation of Hincmar’s De Divortio by Rachel Stone and myself.
Here’s an index (not including very short partial translations and excerpts), in case the translations are useful for anyone. I’ll update this page as and when I put fresh material online. These aren’t polished pieces of work, so please do let me know if you have comments or suggestions, or spot any errors. I’d love to hear your thoughts.
