|Origin and Provenance||
Origin probably Cambrai. The manuscript was ordered by Albericus, bishop of Cambrai (763–90) and Arras, as the colophon on fol. 75 proves: 'EXPLICIT LIBER CANONUM QUEM DOMNUS ALBERICUS EPISCOPUS URBIS CAMARACINSIUM ET ADRABATINSIUM FIERI ROGAVIT. DEO GRATIAS. AMEN'. Was preserved at the cathedral of Cambrai.

Script is a curious minuscule written mostly in one hand; it is important because it is placed and dated: a has two forms; the curve of f and ꞅ sweeps well to the right; the Insular form of Ᵹ occurs regularly in the Irish homily (foll. 37–38); Y is v-shaped and dotted. Notae Tironianae occur (foll. 4, 46v). The binding seems old.
