Manuscript summary: The incompletely preserved "Edictus Rothari" is the oldest extant copy of the early medieval law of the Lombards as decreed by King Rothari (636-652) in 643. This earliest known copy, dating from 670/680 and originating in Bobbio (?) has been preserved only as fragments divided between the Abbey Library of St. Gall, the Badische Landesbibliothek Karlsruhe, the Zentralbibliothek in Zurich and the Zurich cantonal archives. The largest portion of the fragments, which were bound together in the present volume by Abbey Librarian Ildefons von Arx in 1822, is found at the Abbey Library of St. Gall. This version of the Edictus Rothari manuscript, which existed between 1972 and 2008, also contains photos of all the Edictus Rothari fragments held in Karlsruhe and and Zurich, inserted in the appropriate locations among the fragmental leaves of the St. Gall volume, in a way intented to virtually reproduce the original complete 7th century manuscript. When the original manuscript was unbound, after the middle of the 15th century at the latest, important leaves and textual fragments were removed.
