This CCL tool allows you to search across the ever-expanding CCL "Conceptual Corpus" of Carolingian canon law without the constraints of standardised orthography. CCL transcriptions are faithful to the manuscripts, to the letter. To make best use of the search engine, please consider the following:
  • A search for damnatis yields the hits damnatis and also a list of orthographical variants possibly meriting investigation: damnatus, damnati, damnatum, damnari.
  • A search for damnatis tentantibus yields hits reading De damnatis et ministrare tentantibus and no variants.
  • A search for "damnatis episcopis" yields hits that are exact matches, and also a list of possible variants for both words: damnatus, episcopus, episcopo, epistolis.
  • Clicking on epistolis in the previous example leads to the result damnatis clericis...XIII... epistolis.
  • Using wildcards such as * and ? disables the suggested variants. Thus, a search for damna* produces hits such as damnato, damnari, damnati, damnatis etc. A search for militia? to add one more character yields the hits militiam and militiae, whereas a simple search for militia will produce hits that are exact matches and also a list of possible variants: militiae, militiam, initia, miliciam, miliciae.
It is also possible to search for Biblical references. A search for Tim will yield hits for all identified citations from 1 and 2 Tim. These may be in one or both of two forms:
  • in glosses, which are displayed as such, and are often visually related to the appropriate textual lemma with highlighting;
  • as a mouse-hover box over blue highlighting, for CCL editorial identification of a biblical citation

In the future, cross-references to Gratian will be available.

Other Features:
  • Display of manuscript corrections. To see an example, search for uxorios, click on the hit for Liber I (Collectio Dacheriana (d'Achery ed.). The corrected words are displayed in red; clicking on each corrected word reveals the original, uncorrected form (e.g., pervenerit turns to praevenerit; superstes turns to superestis). Users may thus select word-by-word alternatives to test readings and correspondences to other manuscripts. Both the corrected and uncorrected forms are searchable.
