Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in Italy to judge by the script and marginalia. Provenance Fleury: the eighteenth-century Fleury ex-libris ‘Ex monasterio S. Benedicti Floriacensis supra Ligerim’ stands on fol. 32 of the Orléans bifolium which served as fly-leaf of Orléans MS 268 (224), as is evidenced by the modern note on fol. 33v. The eighteenth-century entry ‘Bibliotheca Floriacensis’ stands on fol. 9 of Paris Lat. 13368 which later at Saint-Germain-des-Prés was numbered ‘1310 olim 635’ (see first fly-leaf, saec. XVIII).

Script Commentary

Script is a beautiful, rapid, expert half-uncial similar to that of the Milan Augustine (CLA 3.325): a approaches the uncial form; d is mostly open; the hasta of f runs along the headline; here and there i after t and r rises above the line, a vestige of early cursive; I-longa is used for the semi-vocal sound; the oblique of N sags; the bow of q is distinctly oval-shaped. Marginalia in sloping b-d uncial of the fifth century. A contemporary reader corrects word-division to conform to Greek doctrine as does a corrector in the Codex Fuldensis (CLA 8.1196 and the Harley Gospels (CLA 2.197).
