Script Uncial
Date VIII¹ (701 - 750)
Origin and Provenance

Written apparently in North Italy, to judge by the script and the additions. Was preserved at Aquileia until 1451, probably in the cathedral library: the entry 'Questo libro si vene daquilegia 1451' stands on fol. 2. It seems to have been at Verona in 1569, according to the sixteenth-century note on fol. 257v: '69 6. Ienaro Verona'. It was probably there that the Silesian humanist Thomas Rehdiger (†1576) purchased it; his library became the property of the city of Breslau in 1645.

Script Commentary

Script is heavy, ungainly uncial, apparently by aged scribes: the bow of A is pointed; the upper loop of B is often a mere point or comma; the upper end of is short, here and there it is seriffed; the left bow of M is mostly closed; the first upright of N is very thin, the second leans to the right and is nail-shaped; Y is short and dotted; Z rises above the line; descenders end in a hair-line; LL occasionally run together. Ligatures include AE, Nꞅ, OR, Uꞅ. A correction in contemporary cursive minuscule on fol. 287, other corrections in uncial saec. VIII. A small correction on fol. 120v is possibly Insular saec. VIII. Some liturgical lection-notes on foll. 163v, 164, etc., and the ‘Capitulares evangelii' on foll. 92v–93v are written in North Italian cursive minuscule saec. VIII with the characteristic ligatures of ce, ss, and st; many arbitrary abbreviations. Numerous notes in Italian cursive saec. XV.
