Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in Italy, to judge by the script. Provenance Fleury: a ninth-century Fleury ex-libris is seen in the Paris portion. Later dismembered and used to strengthen bindings. The Leiden leaves served for a time as fly-leaves in two different manuscripts and were later bound as foll. 167–172 at the end of a ninth-century Micy manuscript of Jerome's Chronicle (Voss. Lat. Qu. 110). Still later they were detached and bound separately.

Script Commentary

Script, in various sizes, is a beautiful uncial of the oldest type; half-uncial occasionally at line-end (fol. 3v). Contemporary cursive half-uncial is seen in a correction (fol. 2v). Variant readings are added in fine ninth-century minuscule; a twelfth-century hand entered on fol. 3 'Lib philosophie; decretales', being the contents of the book for which foll. 3–6 once served as fly-leaves. Neumes and some scribbles occur. See also under Paris and the Vatican.
