|Origin and Provenance||
Written no doubt in Italy. Was certainly in Rome in the eighth century (see next item) and reached St Gall apparently at latest towards the end of that century, as shown by probationes pennae and old German glosses. Was later dismembered and used for bookbinding. The fragment now in the St Gall Stadtbibliothek was taken from the binding of MS 70, which contains Lives of Saints saec. XV and belonged to the monastery until the Reformation. Some of the smaller fragments were recently recovered in MSS 14 and 205 of the Stiftsbibliothek.

Script is a beautiful, expert, ancient uncial. Greek letters used as numerals occur after running titles and in the margin to mark chapters. An interlinear insertion in fine contemporary uncial is seen on p. 82; the same page has a probatio pennae in late eighth-century Alemannic minuscule; the running title in cursive minuscule saec. VII seen on p. 87 continues on the restoration p. 91 (see next item). The fragment in the St Gall Stadtbibliothek contains interlinear Old High German glosses saec. VIII–IX.
