Author
English: Image was made by the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek München and the work itself was made by Carolingian craftsmen in ca. 870 AD.
Français : Image réalisée par la Bayerische Staatsbibliothek München, d'un travail fait vers 870 par des artisans carolingiens.

Technically this image cannot be licensed to any one person or organisation as the artefact in question is medieval and therefore the crafter/author has been dead for several centuries. Also, one could consider this item part of the World Cultural Heritage, since it is one of the few remaining examples of lavishly decorated and illustrated Carolingian Manuscripts.

Techniquement, cette image ne peut faire l'objet de licence à quelque personne physique ou morale, car l'objet est médiéval, et le/les auteur(s) sont morts depuis des siècles. On peut donc considérer cet objet comme partie du patrimoine culturel mondial, car c'est un des rares manuscrits carolingiens richement illustrés et décorés qui subsistent.
