As has been pointed out by many authors, first of all by Arnaldo Momigliano,both the rhetorical annotations and the “editions” of the classics were distinctive marks of the cultural and political identity of the ruling class of the Late Antique Rome. As Momigliano wrote: “Those antiquarians were not frivolous”. Their cultural task was a political duty: to keep alive the old traditions of a civilization, fighting against the breakdown, the collapse of the Antique World.

6.2 Carolingian

6.2.1 bibliography

Godescalc's script, which intermittently betrays its native cursive ancestry by particular letter-forms and ligatures, is regarded by many palaeographers as the first fully-perfected Caroline minuscule. Others believe that that distinction more properly belongs to a minuscule created at Corbie in the time of abbot Maurdramnus (772-80/1)—by an individual, I am sure, and not by a committee—to be the fitting script for a new and unexpectedly critical edition of the old testament and doubtless, in intention, for other Christian books also. [p. 39]
