Sample text

Her special relationship with Abbess Gerberga II, whom she mentions with esteem and affection on several occasions, makes it highly probable that she was not only socially close to the political development of Ottonian kingship but was also an intelligent and informed observer. Her two historical poems, the Gesta, of which the actual deeds of Otto I are but one component, and the Primordia, which sets the origin and early years of her convent within a frame of veneration of Liudolfing and Ottonian women,48 attest to the high regard in which her historical knowledge and understanding were held, and not only within her convent.

39 Trier on the Mosel, Magdeburg on the Elbe Consideration of the ecclesiastical relations between Trier and Magdeburg will suggest something of Hrotsvit’s perception of the Church in her time. The ancient city of Trier in Lotharingia, established by the Romans as a provincial capital, had been a bishopric since the 3rd century and an archbishopric since the 9th. With Mainz, Cologne, and Metz, it belonged to an old and highly influential group of ecclesiastical centers on the Rhine or its tributaries.

The volume as a whole thus appears as a serial collection of apparently all of Hrotsvit’s works. It would readily have admitted her Primordia, and this in final position, but the codex as it appears today gives no indication that it once did so. Manuscript M was clearly and carefully written in Carolingian minuscule of the 10th century by four or five scribes who made quite a few errors, which were corrected in several ways shortly thereafter. The “strata” of these corrections are not easy to discern.
