Morgenstern, The Gallows Songs trans. Knight, Introduction In my Diplomatic Studies in Latin and Greek Documents from the Carolingian Age,1 I offered the Prolegomena to an edition of the Libri Carolini LC , and here I hope that the reader will compare what I have said there with what I am writing in the present investigations concerning the Libri Carolini, Alcuin's works, and from Theodulf's writings, in order to see where my disagreements with Ann Freeman's and Paul Meyvaert's expositions of these texts lie. For example, there is unnecessary confusion concerning the manuscript evidence of the Vaticanus codex of the LC see E 3. The comparison of text passages not written by Theodulf with passages in the LC in order to prove Theodulf's alleged authorship of the LC see D 2 is another indication of the unsound methods followed by both Meyvaert and Freeman. Other sections of the present study will correct some misconceptions, dismiss the fiction of "Visigothic" evidence in support of Theodulf's alleged authorship, and add new proofs to the evidence for Alcuin's authorship of the LC. In Section A, I discuss Alcuin's citations of 1. In B, I move on to Bede's De templo. Section C deals with misrepresentations of the LC text caused by omission of words which produce distortions of historical evidence. Section D discusses the use of unconvincing parallels between the LC and Theodulf, even if the latter are demonstrably not written by Theodulf, but by another author who is cited by Theodulf anonymously.

This document is lost, but its content may be gathered from the moderate and prudent reply of Adrian PL ; cf. Nam absit a nobis ut ipsas imagines, sicut quidam garriunt, deificemus, etc. Dissatisfied with this defence of the council not reputed oecumenical by the king's theologians Charlemagne caused the preparation of the large work in question, known since then as "Quattuor Libri Carolini". In further explanation of this remarkable step, it has been noted that Charlemagne was at this time much irritated against the Greek Empress Irene, partly for the failure of the marriage projected between her son and his daughter Rotrudis, partly for the protection and help she was affording to Adelchis, the son of the dethroned King of Lombardy , to which may be added a certain jealousy of any authority over his Frankish subjects by a Greek council in which they had taken no part.

Some believe that he was even then contemplating the assumption of the imperial title, and was therefore only too willing to discredit Greek authority wherever possible. The work was first printed at Paris in by the priest Jean du Tillet Tilius , later Bishop of Saint Brieuc and then of Meaux, but anonymously and without indication of the place where he found the manuscript Tilius was suspected of a leaning to Calvinism.

While the Centuriators of Magdeburg at once made use of it as an evidence of Catholic corruption of the true doctrine concerning images, some Catholic apologists asserted that it was only an heretical work sent by Charlemagne to Rome for condemnation, others that it was a forgery of Carlstad the manuscript of Tilius was, after all, a very recent one; Floss, De suspecta librorum Carolinorum a Joanne Tilio editorum fide, Bonn, Floss op.

Moreover, the work is evidenced as extant in the latter half of the ninth century by Hincmar of Reims Adv. VIII, Diss. VI, 6. The work was reprinted by the imperialist editor Michael Goldast Imperialia decreta de cultu imaginum, Frankfort, , p. Migne P. Caroli M.

VI, The authors of the "Libri Carolini" admit that images may be used as ecclesiastical ornaments, for purposes of instruction, and in memory of past events; it is foolish, however, to burn incense before them and to use lights, though it is quite wrong to cast them out of the churches and destroy them.

The writers are scandalized chiefly by the Latin term adoratio, taking it wrongly to mean absolute adoration, whereas the original Greek word, Proskynesis, means no more than reverence in a prostrate attitude.

So they insist that God alone is to be adored adorandus et colendus.

They blame the excessive reverence shown by the Greeks to their emperors, criticize unfavourably the elevation of Tarasius to the Patriarchate of Constantinople, and find fault not always unreasonably with the Scriptural and patristic exegesis of the Greeks.

It seemed to them, therefore, that they could not otherwise pay due reverence to the images of the Saviour and the saints. It was otherwise with the Germans , unaccustomed to prostrate themselves or to bend the knee before their kings.

Such acts seemed fitted to express that adoration latreia which was due to God alone; when exhibited to others they were frequently a source of scandal. In the Teutonic mind, moreover, the freer ecclesiastical life of the West already shone by contrast with the extravagance of Oriental emperor-worship.

As stated above, Pope Hadrian I , in a letter addressed to Charlemagne , answered lengthily the eighty-five Capitula submitted to him.

He reminded the king that twelve of his bishops had taken part in a Roman Synod previous to the Second Nicene Council and had approved the "cultus" of images; he refuted a number of the arguments and objections brought forward, and asserted the identity of his teaching with that of the highly-respected Pope Gregory the Great concerning images. He also defended in a dignified way the Second Nicene Synod, not yet finally acknowledged by him, calling attention at the same time to his own just grievances against the Greeks who still retained the churches and estates that the Iconoclast Leo III had violently withdrawn from Roman jurisdiction.

This letter of Pope Adrian d. Charlemagne sent the acts of this synod to Rome , with a demand for the condemnation of Irene and Constantine VI, but seems gradually to have yielded to the mild and prudent firmness of Adrian for whom he professed at all times the most sincere admiration and friendship.

A last echo of the theological conflict crystallized in the "Libri Carolini" is heard at the Paris Synod of , which, no wiser than its predecessor as to the erroneous version of the acts in question, sought in vain to obtain from Pope Eugene II an abandonment of the position taken by Adrian I. Despite the increasing favour of the "cultus" of images among their people, the Frankish bishops continued their opposition to the Second Nicene Council; the latter, however, eventually gained recognition especially after a new and somewhat more accurate version of its acts and decrees was made by Anastasius Bibliothecarius under John VIII In the meantime the Frankish writer Walafrid Strabo had summarized and popularized the true ecclesiastical doctrine in his excellent "Liber de exordiis et incrementis rerum ecclesiasticarum", written about ed.
