|Date||VIII in (701 - 725)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written apparently in East France, in a centre under Anglo-Saxon influence which also produced MSS Lat. 2110, 2706 (CLA 5.541, 547) and Gotha 1.75. All the fragments come from St Germain des Prés; Lat. 12238 has a thirteenth-century ex-libris on fol. 1 and the other two have a sixteenth-century ex-libris. In Lat. 12207 (fol. 1) the ex-libris reads 'Iste liber pertinet ecclesie sancti germani de pratis'; the manuscript bore the number '763, olim 222' at St Germain.

Script is a bold, well-formed half-uncial, recalling the script of Paris Lat. 2706 and 2110 (CLA 5.547, 541), with the peculiar forms of G, N and X, and suprascript N and t at line-end: capital A and v-shaped u are not infrequent at line-ends; the form of initial uncial A is noteworthy. Marginalia with lessons from the Gospels in a curious angular minuscule are seen on many leaves.
