  • Paris France Bibliothèque Nationale de France Nouv. Acq. Lat. 2061
Script Half-Uncial
Date VII–VIII (680 - 720)
Origin and Provenance

Origin presumably North-east France. Was apparently at Corbie early in the eighth century, as shown by the unmistakable Corbie marginalia; the manuscript may have been written there. Belonged to Beauvais as early as the twelfth century: the entry ‘Sancti Petri Belvacensis' is seen on foll. 40, 41v, 56. Later at the Château de Troussures near Beauvais, where it was numbered 263; bound in 1808 (see front paper fly-leaf). Sold to the Bibliothèque Nationale in 1909.

Script Commentary

Script is a late type of half-uncial, almost verging on minuscule: G and N are the rule; y is short, with both branches curving to the right—an Insular feature. Some pale-coloured marginalia in a characteristic semi-cursive minuscule, set off by an S-like flourish above and below the entry (foll. 2v, 18, 38v, 46v, 52, 58v), are in the hand found in the margin of several other MSS from Corbie (see CLA 5.619). An insertion in Maurdramnus-type saec. IX in. is seen on fol. 50.
