Parchments from the archive of the Abbey of Santa Maria delle Carceri

Parchments from the archive of the Abbey of Santa Maria delle Carceri

Description

A miscellanea of 30 loose parchments from the archive of the Abbey of Santa Maria delle Carceri, near Este, that came under the auspices of the Chair in Palaeography at the University of Padova’s Institute of Palaeography in the early 1900s. Now in the hands of the Department of Historical and Geographic Sciences and the Ancient World, they are an invaluable source for students of both local history and medieval toponymy, but also offer an intriguing take on the controversy over rights to the tithes of the ancient territory of Scodosia – the south-west section of the Province of Padua – during the period 1199 to 1236.
