[The Chancellery and the Production of Deeds by the Counts of Holstein-Schaumburg between 1189 and 1290.]
This study analyses the production of indentures by the counts of Schaumburg-Lippe, from the times of count Adolf III. until the rule of his grandson count Gerhard I. It focuses on the following questions: How was the chancellery financed and what were the influences of the division of territories in 1273? What happened to the chancellors after they developed presbyopia? Which networks did the chancellors develop in the followership of the counts? How could they be used to secure the provision of their own relatives?
