Nota : Versus de scachis is a Medieval Latin poem about chess. It is found on two manuscripts from Einsiedeln: MS Einsidlensis 365 and MS Einsidlensis 319.

The version in MS 319 is a partial copy (verses 65-98), of a source other than MS 365, dated to 997. The poem itself was most likely composed in the first half of the 10th century, possibly in Northern Italy. It is the oldest reference to Chess in Europe.

Well, I thought that I did register before posting that. As it turns out, I was so tired last night that I accidentally registered at the wrong wiki! At any rate, when I asked what I had done wrong, I was using that strong language facetiously. But I was genuinely concerned that I wasn't doing this right, as I have no experience with Wikisource, and I'm not really sure what's expected, or how to format/catalog new articles and so on. --Iustinus 19:15, 8 Dec 2004 (UTC)
