|Script||Early Caroline Minuscule|
|Date||VIII–IX (780 - 820)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written doubtless in the Rhenish area, probably in Alsatia, to judge by the script. Belonged to Murbach in the fifteenth century, as is shown by the familiar entry on fol. 112v: 'Orate p reu'endo' (the continuation is erased). Bought by Duke Ernest II (†1804) of Gotha-Altenburg from J. B. Maugérard between 1795 and 1802.

Script is early Caroline minuscule recalling Weissenburg hands, with three forms of a and two of d; majuscule N occurs; numerous ligatures; a in ligature occurs suprascript as in pre-Caroline and subscript as in Insular. An attempt at half-uncial is seen in some subscriptions and dates (foll. 44 ff.).
