Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless at St Denis, to judge by close resemblance to MS Lat. 17371 (CLA 5.668), written by order of Fardulfus, abbot of St Denis (793–806). A later specimen of this type is MS Lat. 13025. Belonged to Cardinal Richelieu, whose arms are on both bindings. Later in the Library of the Sorbonne. Shelf-marks seen in Lat. 15304 are '18', '325', and '2786'; in Lat. 15305: '19', '326’, and '2786'.

Script Commentary

Script is well-formed Caroline minuscule of the same type and perhaps even the same hand as seen in MS Lat. 17371 (CLA 5.668), written for Abbot Fardulfus of St Denis: a is the rule; the uncial form of occurs. A curious monogram is seen on fol. 5v of Lat. 15304; a Nota Tironiana on fol. 95 of Lat. 15304; a probatio pennae: 'O beate di(onisi)' entered on fol. 29 of Lat. 15305 by a tenth-century hand.
