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

Written at Tours; it is the oldest surviving Bible from that scriptorium and apparently represents an early experimental stage in Tours Bible production. Was at St Gall by the ninth century, as the corrections show.

Script Commentary

Script is a Caroline minuscule by numerous hands, some of which are of the distinct Tours type while others are not: a has various forms; i-longa occurs here and there initially; N is frequent; Z when capital has a horizontal bar (cf. CLA 6.762). Corrections by ninth-century St Gall hands. Many leaves have suffered later mutilation.
