The Lorsch Pharmacopoeia is one of the most famous manuscripts associated with Lorsch. This document was probably written in Lorsch in the last decade of the 8th century and then completed under Henry II, Holy Roman Emperor, in the library at Bamberg Cathedral. It is one of the oldest pharmacopoeia in the western world, containing an important collection of ancient recipes. The preface is also an impressive example of Carolingian scholarship and is one of the key texts on the justification of interest in the legacy of pagan antiquity. The pharmacopoeia was entered in the UNESCO Memory of the World Register in 2013 and is accessible online.
