Script Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written at Saint-Amand or Salzburg. A manuscript identical in text, size, and script is Troyes 581 (CLA 6.839). Our manuscript belonged to the Charterhouse Prül near Regensburg where it was listed in the catalogue of 1347, and whence it was acquired by the Nuremberg physician and humanist Hartmann Schedel (†1514); his ex-libris: LIBER · DOCTORIS · HARTMANI · SCHEDEL · DE NVREMBERGA stands on the front cover. Later in the possession of the Fugger family at Augsburg. In 1571 it was purchased with the library of Johann Jacob Fugger for the ducal library at Munich.

Script Commentary

Script is well-formed Caroline minuscule by several hands: a is the rule; noteworthy are the forms of the ligatures or in the ending -orum and the abbreviation 'frs' (for fratres); the ligature UT occurs even in the middle of words. Half-uncial is used for the table of contents, and here and there for opening lines, a usage reminiscent of Tours. Some Notae Tironianae on foll. 69 ff. A few ninth-century entries are apparently by a Salzburg scribe Baldo (on foll. 13v, 19). Some fifteenth-century notes refer to Hussite heresies; others are written by Hartmann Schedel.
