Origin and Provenance

Written in France. Was at Fleury by the end of the eighth century: the ex-libris which runs across the lower margin of the opening p. 55–56 reads 'Hic est liber sancti benedicti de floriaco monasterii'; other Fleury press-marks on p. 272 (saec. IX) and p. 2 (saec. XVIII). The manuscript came to the municipal library of Orléans during the Revolution. It was dismembered there by Libri whose forged inscription 'Est Sancti Petri de Perusio' stands on foll. 24v and 39v of Paris N.A.L. 1598 and 1599 respectively. The two Paris parts (numbers 9 and 11 in Libri's catalogue) were sold to Lord Ashburnham from whom the Bibliothèque Nationale acquired them in 1888.

Script Commentary

Script is a late uncial by several hands: the bow of uncial A is oval; the stem of is long; I often goes below the line; the top of T is broad; U is often V-shaped; Y descends below the line; LL run together. An omission is supplied in cursive minuscule saec. VIII (p. 142). An interlinear correction on p. 298 is apparently by a Visigothic hand saec. IX; the 'Nota' on p. 207 resembles similar entries in Orléans MS 192 (CLA 6.805) and in the Fleury Fulgentius in Vatic. Regin. Lat. 267 (CLA 1.104b). Probationes pennae in charter hand and some neumes on p. 166, originally left blank.
