Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless at St Gall, to judge by certain points of similarity with St Gall MS 44 with which it agrees in size and is connected in content. The St Gall origin of MS 44 is established by a subscription (see CLA 7.899).

Script Commentary

Script is a rather broad roundish minuscule of the Alemannic type, by more than one hand; one hand leans distinctly to the right: Caroline a is used rather frequently and uncial occasionally; the shaft of h here and there ends in a curve; z is tall and has various forms; ligatures are numerous, nt occurs often in mid word, ti ligature is used for hard ti; another hand is closely related to the hand of St Gall MS 230 (see CLA 7.933). Corrections in a contemporary hand.


☛Weber-Gryson, Vulgata MS S (Is ler Lam).
