  • Title: The Dotal Charter as Theological Charter [The author analyzes four dotal charters from a printed collection in the "Monumenta Germaniae Historica" entitled "Formulae Merowingici et Karolini Aevi." Rather than simply record the bridegrooms' promised gifts, they include small theological treatises on the sanctity of marriage. They draw on liturgical sources to explain important events in sacred history including Eve's creation as a help to Adam and Christ's miracle at the marriage in Cana. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
