Origin and Provenance

Written in North-east France, probably in the same scriptorium as Vatic. Regin. Lat. 316 + Paris Lat. 7193, Paris Lat. 10399 + 10400, and others (CLA 1.105; 5.594; and 6 p. xxii), very likely at Chelles. The Paris part belonged to Claude Dupuy (†1594). The Karlsruhe fragment was already separated from the main manuscript in the sixteenth century.

Script Commentary

Script is a rather pretty, artificial uncial of the type described under Vatic. Regin. Lat. 316 (CLA 1.105): resembles an apple with its stem; the bows of M rise branch-like above the base-line; N is characteristic, with its first vertical leaning to the right and the second to the left; S is slim and its upper curve small; X is high-waisted; LL run together; descenders end in a hair-line. For other details see under Paris (CLA 5.567).
