Origin and Provenance

Written in Italy, possibly during the lifetime of Jerome, to judge by the palaeography of the manuscript. Dismembered and used at St Gall in 1461, when the library was reorganized, for binding manuscripts. The St Paul leaves were probably acquired by Abbot Martin Gerbert for St Blasien in the Black Forest between 1768 and 1781. They came to St Paul in 1807.

Script Commentary

Script is a graceful early half-uncial, pleasantly irregular: a is open and generally small; c and e extend above the other small letters; i often extends above the headline or below the base-line or both, apparently without any rule; suprascript cup-shaped u occurs near line-ends; some ligatures are used at line-ends. Contemporary marginalia and variant Latin and Greek readings in a small, bold, somewhat cursive half-uncial (MS 1395, p. 95) seen in the hand of the scribe.
