Script Early Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, presumably Switzerland and possibly the centre that produced St Gall MS 1399 a. 3, with which our manuscript agrees in size and various palaeographical features. Our leaf was used for binding 'I. Pars Hist(oriarum) Pauli Iouii italice' according to the title still visible on the recto. Was probably acquired for Engelberg after 1891 by B. Gottwald, librarian of the monastery, who marked the content, but did not include the fragment in his published catalogue.

Script Commentary

Script is early Caroline minuscule: a is far more frequent than open a; ff run together and have the tongue on the base-line; tall shafts often lean to the left, those of b and l break near the head-line; subscript i occurs after n.
