|Origin and Provenance||
Written probably at Weissenburg, to judge from the script. The leaves were used there at the end of the Middle Ages for binding purposes. The entry 'Liber mon. S. Petri in Wissenburg' saec. XV or XVI in. is seen in Paris Lat. 2175 (foll. 1, 1v , 128v), in Wolfenbüttel Weiss. 63 (fol. 3 and front fly-leaf), 66 (fol. 1), 67 (fol. 1), 77 (front fly-leaf verso), and in Würzburg M. p. th. f. 34 (foll. Bv, 17). This last manuscript belonged later to the Jesuit convent of Molsheim in Alsatia (cf. the ex-libris saec. XVII on fol. B). The history of the Berlin leaf is not known, but its measurements are approximately the same as those of Wolfenbüttel Nov. 404.2 No. 4, so both leaves may have been taken out of the same binding.

Script is a more or less regular early Caroline minuscule by several scribes, one of whom was probably Adallandus who wrote parts of Wolfenbüttel MS Weiss. 14 (see CLA 9.1384); older forms such as N, r going below the line, and ꞇ with the horizontal curving down to the line on the left are still used by some hands. For other details see under Leiden.
