How did monks and clerics in the Frankish realm adapt antique knowledge from the Mediterranean on medicine and astronomy and how did they integrate it in their Christian worldview? Hedwig Röckelein investigates these questions with the help of manuscripts from St. Gall and Lorsch as well as from the Carolingian Court in Aachen.
