From Medieval Texts
Jump to: navigation, search

The Monumenta Germaniae historica inde ab anno Christi quingentesimo usque ad annum millesimum et quingentesimum (frequently abbreviated as the MGH), translated as Historical Monuments of Germany from AD 500 to 1500 is an ongoing anthology of medieval manuscript transcriptions dating from approximately 300 to 1500 CE. The project was begun in 1826 by Heinrich Friedrich Karl, Freiherr vom Stein, and continued by Georg Heinrich Pertz and Georg Waitz. Although it began as primarily a repository for Frankish and German medieval history, it quickly expanded to include any medieval European texts that had not yet been transcribed, a practice that is continued even today. In 1875, the series was taken over by the government of the German Empire under the authority of the Society for the Publication of Sources on Germanic Affairs of the Middle Ages. In 1935, under the Nationalist Socialist regime, it was placed under the authority of the Reichsinstitut für ältere deutsche Geschichtskunde (National Institute for Older German History). Following the war, the series ceased publication for a number of years before reviving under its Imperial name, with the sponsorship of various German and Austrian institutions. The headquarters of the organisation is in Munich where they maintain a large medieval manuscript library. The society relocated to the Bavarian State Library in 1967.
