|Date||VIII (701 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably in a Swiss centre under Italian influence, perhaps in the same region which produced MSS Einsiedeln 369, foll. 1–2 and Schaffhausen, Ministerialbibliothek 80 + Zürich, Antiquarische Gesellschaft 19, No. XLII, fol. 67 (p. 127) (CLA 7.881, 1003). The manuscript was dismembered at St Gall, probably by the thirteenth century, to judge from the two St Gall pressmarks, saec. XIII and XV, seen at the top of p. 1 of MS 46.
