Script Luxeuil Minuscule

Origin and Provenance

Written probably at Luxeuil, to judge by the script; it is noteworthy that several other ancient manuscripts were rewritten in that type (see CLA 6, p. xvii). Later at Reichenau: on p. Aa: ‘lib augie maioris’ (saec. XV); there is no ground for believing that it came there from Verona in connection with Bishop Egino. Acquired for St Blasien in the Black Forest under Abbot Martin Gerbert between 1768 and 1781. Brought to St Paul in 1807.

Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is cursive minuscule of the Luxeuil type: uncial A and 𐌾 are used here and there, N frequently; a is often suprascript; i-longa occurs initially; sickle-shaped u occurs suprascript or on the line; ti ligature is used for hard and soft ti. A few corrections saec. IX by a Reichenau hand (p. 3–4). The manuscript has suffered much from the use of reagents.


☛Tewes, Luxeuil No. 14, dates to VIII in. ☛Ganz, Luxeuil: several scribes writing an angular script.
