Chapter Summary

This chapter provides summary of all the chapters of the book, which offers the first classification and preliminary survey of the extant manuscripts containing abbreviations and/or paraphrases of the Historia Romana (HR). It deals with the related manuscripts Bamberg (B), Salisbury (S), Oxford (O) and the Vatican U and V. The study of the historical context suggests three possibilities as to how the exemplar of the Bamberg codex might have been brought to Halberstadt: by a visiting cleric coming from Italy, by bishop Arnulf or by Henry II himself returning from one of his Italian expeditions. An analysis of the language of the textual collection, indicates that all texts, except the texts of Jordanes, Bede, the Isidore fragment and the final historical notes are related by syntactic affinities and similarities of vocabulary.

Keywords: Bamberg (B); Historia Romana (HR); Roman history
