CLA 745
  • Chartres France Bibliothèque Municipale MS 40 (2) (now lost)
Script Uncial
Date VIII med (726 - 775)
Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in France. The manuscript was early in a centre with Spanish connections, as the omission marks suggest. Provenance Fleury: several ninth-century marginal inscriptions in capital, e.g. 'hic est liber sancti BENEDICTI ABBATI FLORIACENSI MONASTERII' (fol. 58). The entry saec. XVIII on fol. 1 reads: 'Ex libris monasterii S. Petri Carnotensis ordinis S. Benedicti congregationis S. Mauri 10. tom. 1.' Another eighteenth-century hand added: 'Ce livre a este apporte de St. Benoist sur Loyre et apparemment des le temps que Ragenfredus (bishop of Chartres, †ca. 960) remit icy les moynes.' Perished in the war in 1944.
