  • Paris France Bibliothèque Nationale de France Lat. 18248 A–Q [palimpsest]
Script Uncial
Date VIII¹ (701 - 750)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain. Written obviously in the same centre as Vienna 181, a manuscript of identical contents. A thirteenth-century entry in the margin of fol. 108 of MS Lat. 18219 which reads: 'Titulus Sancti Quintini de Monte oramus pro' suggests the presence of the manuscript at the abbey of Mont St Quentin at Noyon. Later at Notre Dame de Paris where it had the number 245bis. On fol. 1 of MS Lat. 18219 stands the ex-libris: 'Ant. Oiselius'. The books of Antoine Loisel came to Notre Dame de Paris through his grandson Claude Joly in the seventeenth century.
