Script Anglo-Saxon Minuscule

Origin and Provenance

Written apparently in an Anglo-Saxon centre on the Continent, possibly at Werden itself. Used for rewriting, together with other Werden manuscripts, around the year 1500; the erased Werden ex-libris, saec. XIII, stands on fol. 66, a palimpsest calendar fragment. Other entries: 'Codex monasterii sci Ludgeri episcopi in Werdena', saec. XV–XVI (fol. 1), and a similar and contemporary one in curious Greek letters (front fly-leaf).
