New Release of Digital Pre-Print Editions of the Charters of Emperor Henry VI

The MGH section Diplomata at the Austrian Institut für Österreichische Geschichtsforschung in Vienna is preparing the edition of the charters of Emperor Henry VI (1165-1197) for publication in tomes 11, 1-2 of the Diplomata series "Die Urkunden der deutschen Könige und Kaiser". When complete, the volumes will contain editions of ca. 800 charters and deperdita issued during Henry VI’s rule as Roman-German King and Emperor.

To shorten the wait for the final printed publication, since 2011 the MGH successively publish digital pre-print editions of the sections as they are completed. To date, our pre-print editions comprise Henry VI’s missives to the Popes and his charters for recipients in the present-day states of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium, Holland, Luxemburg, and in the Italian regions of Liguria, Lombardy, Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Sicily, Calabria, Basilicata, Apulia, Campania, Molise and Abruzzo.

We are now proud to announce the release of further pre-print editions of Henry VI’s charters addressed to recipients in the Italian regions of Piedmont and Latium..
