Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, presumably a centre in East France. The manuscript once belonged to the nunnery of St Peter at Remiremont. Later it came to the monastry of St Peter at Senones near St Dié; the ex-libris ‘Monasterii S. Petri Senonensis ord. S. Bened. Congreg. SS. Vitoni et Hydulphi catalogo inscriptus anno 1750' is seen on fol. 2. An early nineteenth-century shelf-mark 'ARM No. 147' stands on fol. 5.
