Kershaw considers a wide range of sources produced throughout the ninth century for the insight that they provide on notions of peaceful kingship: Smaragdus of St-Mihiel's Via regia (a mirror for princes written for Louis), Amalarius of Metz's Liber officialis (an exegetical reading of the Christian liturgy), Ermoldus Nigellus' epic poem in praise of Louis (Carmen in honorem Hludowici Christianissimi caesaris augusti), the polemical writings of Agobard of Lyon, the anonymous Song of Count Timo (Carmen de Timone comite), and Florus of Lyon's poetic lament for the destruction caused by the civil war between the sons of Louis the Pious (Querela de divisione imperu).
