Origin and Provenance

Written in Italy and probably in the North, to judge by the script (cf. CLA 3.**325; 5.572; 6.815). Rewritten about 800, in some Rhaetian or possibly Alemannic centre, with two different texts: Caesarius’ homilies, etc., and the Vita of the Rhaetian Saint Lucius. Both manuscripts were at St Gall in the ninth century, since they are mentioned in the old St Gall catalogue.

Script is a beautiful early half-uncial: the second stroke of N is thin and sags. Greek words (p. 244) are written in Greek letters showing Latin influence.
