|Script||Caroline Minuscule, Mixed Half-Uncial, and Cursive Minuscule|
|Date||IX in (799 - 836)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably at Amiens for Jesse, bishop of that city (799–836), who probably used this book for his Epistula de baptismo in the year 812: on fol. 1v after the title is the entry 'IESSE PONTIFEX VTERE FELIX'. Cambridge Magdalene College MS Pepys 2981, 1 (CLA 2.131), Leiden MS Voss. F. 26 (CLA 10.1579), and Poitiers MS 17 (CLA 6.821) apparently come from the same scriptorium. Belonged to the Bamberg cathedral library: the ex-libris saec. XVII is on the paper fly-leaf. Was bound up with the second part of MS Class. 3 (CLA 8.1027a), to judge by the fifteenth-century table of contents.

Script is mainly Caroline minuscule: a, d, and n have two forms; a curious type of half-uncial mixed with uncial (R, S, and here and there ꝺ) and a cursive minuscule, apparently by the main hand, appear in the 'verba Ioviniani'. Notes and corrections saec. IX and XI–XII.
