Italian Legal Manuscripts at Chartres : Notes on Provenance. Throughout the XIIIth century numerous Italian canons received their prebends in the affluent cathedral chapter of Chartres. In the XIVth century, they were followed by other beneficiaries of the extraordinary pontifical collations, mainly from southern France. The present paper proposes a closer look at six legal manuscripts of Italian origin, formerly in the chapter library, that survived the 1944 bombing in various states of preservation. By retracing their individual histories, it aims to better understand the impact of this itinerant clerical body on the formation of the chapter library.
