Definition of CAPITULARIES


CAPITULARIES

The Capitularia or Capitularies, was a code of laws
promulgated by Childebert, Clotaire, Carloman, Pepin, Charlemague, and other
kings. It was so called from the small chapters or heads into which they
were divided. The edition by Baluze, published in 1677, is said to be the
best.
