Origin and Provenance

Written probably at Tours, if we may be guided by the style of the half-uncial and the general aspect of the minuscule. The manuscript belonged to the Silesian humanist Thomas Rehdiger (†1576) and was bequeathed with his library to the city of Breslau in 1645. Destroyed in 1945.

Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is early minuscule approaching Caroline, with some cursive features: a is mostly open, but some scribes prefer the uncial form; d is mostly minuscule; g occurs both in the half-uncial and the minuscule form; N is frequent; u occasionally suprascript and cup-shaped. Numerous ligatures include aꞇ, nꞇ, rro, ꞇra. Large half-uncial of the Tours type is seen in some first lines and headings (foll. 4, 15v , 28v, 30v etc.). Notae Tironianae occur.
