Origin and Provenance

Written apparently in South France, to judge by the script and the Visigothic abbreviation of 'per' in the text. Was seen at St Gall in the beginning of the fifteenth century by the papal secretary Cencio Rustici. The Zürich leaf was probably removed when the St Gall manuscripts were transported to Zürich during the war of Toggenburg in 1712.

Script Commentary

Script is uncial by two scribes of different skill and training: one uses an A with a long pointed bow almost resting on the line; 𐌾 has a short tail; LL run together; the third stroke of N (in one hand) is distinctly comma-shaped; the bow of R (in one hand) is low and open. Small contemporary corrections in fine cursive on p. 11 and 35. Probationes pennae ('adnexique', etc.) in minuscule saec. VIII–IX and a prayer in barbarous Latin written in Merovingian cursive minuscule saec. VIII stand on p. A.
