Script Pre-Caroline, Caroline, and Cursive Minuscule
Date VIII² (751 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Written in a somewhat backward French scriptorium, probably in the Loire region as is suggested by the contents. Belonged later to the monastery of St Emmeram at Regensburg, certainly by the end of the fifteenth century as the typical chained binding and shelf-marks testify. Seen by Mabillon in 1683 at Weingarten, whence it came to Fulda in 1803.

Script Commentary

Script by several hands of various types: the main hand is a crude sloping minuscule with two forms of a, and c rising above the head-line; other hands write mixed debased uncial, or cursive recalling charter script; an addition in rapid charter-hand on fol. 14; Caroline minuscule is seen on foll. 17v and 77v. Notae Tironianae occur on fol. 11.
