Origin and Provenance

Written in Italy, to judge by the script. May have been at St Gall in the ninth century to judge by corrections. Later at Reichenau: ‘LIBER MONASTERII AUGIE MAIORIS’ (saec. XIII, on the old binding). Acquired for St Blasien in the Black Forest, presumably 1768–1781. Brought to St Paul in 1807.

Script Commentary

Script is excellent uncial of an old type: the bow of A is pointed; N is mostly broad; at line-ends U is sometimes V-shaped; ligatures at line-ends include US, AG, and RE. The manuscript was corrected throughout by the late ninth-century scholar, probably Abbot Hartmut himself (872–883), whose hand is seen in several St Gall manuscripts (see CLA 7.936). Probationes pennae here and there in mixed uncial and cursive saec. VI and VII, cf. especially fol. 155v: ‘felix theudosius qui . . . defendet inluster’. The entry ‘sigirih’, saec. VIII–IX, stands on fol. 152v.
