„Sacrum Palatium“. Eine in der Gegenwart missbrauchte Konstruktion des 9. Jahrhunderts ('Sacrum Palatium'. A 9th Century Construction Abused in the Present Day)
The short article deals with the classification of the term "Sacrum Palatium" in the early medieval Carolingian sources. Its use is traced based on a manageable number of references and placed in a historical context. It can be shown that it can be confined to a few, but quite prominent decades of the reign of Louis the Pious, and has only recently developed a life of its own.
