Letter from Ermenrich of Ellwangen to Grimald
The catalogue entry for this text has not been published as yet. Until then, a selection of data is made available below.
A letter written c.850x854 by Ermenrich, monk of Ellwangen (later bishop of Passau), to Grimald, who was abbot of St. Gall and Weissenburg as well as archchaplain of Louis the German. Ermenrich devotes a section to the Life of St Gall and notes that he would have completed a metrical version had someone else not beaten him to it. The letter survives because Grimald had it included in a manuscript compiled for his use.
