Abstract :
During the first Carolingian period, the creed, defined as symbolum, not only signified the political and ecclesiological unity of Charlemagne’s kingdom and then empire, but was also a factor in the organization of theological treatises. The collection of creeds, initially included in Dagulf ’s manuscript — made as a gift for Pope Hadrian I — was widely copied and «corrected» in the Carolingian world. These emendations to the creed reveal the Carolingian desire to defend faith against new «heresies» like adoptianism or Greek pneumatology.
