|Date||VIII–IX (780 - 820)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written apparently at St Gall, to judge by the script, mostly by Uuolfgisus presbyter whose subscription is seen on fol. 213v. Belonged to the monastery of Allerheiligen at Schaffhausen. The eleventh-century entry on fol. 1, 'Istum librum domno willehelmo et nocturnalem librum', may refer to Wilhelm, abbot of Hirsau, whence other books came to Allerheiligen with the first monks. Preserved after the Reformation in the church of St John at Schaffhausen, as is attested by the ex-libris (saec. XVIII) on fol. 1v.
