Script Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written at Verona, presumably for Bishop Egino (796–9) who after his resignation lived at Reichenau (†802). Our volume formed part of the 'Moralia in Iob libri XXXV in codicibus VI' listed in the Reichenau catalogue of 822. Fifteenth-century Reichenau ex-libris are seen in MSS 2, fol. 1; 3, fol. 2; 4, fol. 1.

Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is a firm, regular, and stately Caroline minuscule of the same type as, in part by the very hand that wrote MSS Paris Lat. 10457 + 10616 (CLA 5.601) and probably also St Gall 110 (CLA 7.907): a and d have two forms; f is half-uncial; g either has the characteristic Veronese longish looped top or is half-uncial; ligatures include both o and u with s going below the line, and UR, all at line-end. Corrections by several ninth-century Reichenau hands, one recalling that of Reginbert (e.g. MS 2, fol. 54v); another hand recalls Hartmut of St Gall (e.g. MS 4, fol. 140; cf. under CLA 7.936) The name ‘VVIPREHT is carefully pricked in the lower margin of fol. 56 of MS 2. The entry 'hiltibolt kerhart termmauit istum librum' in MS 4, fol. 278v is a tenth-century probatio pennae. For an offset of an Evangelistarium in uncial saec. VIII–IX found in the back cover of MS Aug. 3, see CLA 8.1115.
