APPENDIX A Liturgical Privileges in Royal Acts, 768-1108

The figures that follow are based on an analysis of the extant acts of four kings: Charlemagne ( 768-814), Charles the Bald ( 840- 77), Lothar ( 954-84), and Philip I ( 1060-1108).

Table 1 shows the percentage of royal acts that mention liturgical privileges of any kind. Most of the references to "prayer" in these acts have to do with prayers for ruler and realm, performed as a public service by the churches of the kingdom. I have distinguished between this kind of prayer and other services which a king chose to establish for himself and the members of his family. The number of churches at which each king sought these other privileges is indicated on the last line of this table.

The figures in Table 2 represent the percentage of transactions involving liturgical privileges which mention particular types of
