Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in France and possibly in the scriptorium which produced the Psalterium duplex, the Missale Francorum, and Paris N. A. Lat. 1740, and perhaps also St Gall 214 (CLA 1.101, 103; 5.691; 7.924). A table of contents was added in the eleventh century on fol. 11; three separate liturgical entries on that folio make mention of St Theodolus. The autograph note now on the back cover, dated 27 February 1608, in the hand of the Augsburg antiquarian Marcus Welser, who is the first known owner of the manuscript, records the sending of this volume to the Jesuit Father Heribert Rosweyde. Later it belonged to the Municipal Library of Augsburg.

Script Commentary

Script of the opening pp.1-8 (an incomplete quire) is a graceful, roundish minuscule with a characteristic r; the bulk of the manuscript is in bold uncial by several hands with interesting minuscule on pp. 190-191 closely related to the marginal hand in the Psalterium duplex; one hand regularly uses half-uncial d in the symbol for dixit; majuscule E occurs here and there, and the barred Z regularly on pp. 246 ff.; LL run together. There are many ninth- and tenth-century corrections. the added pp. 301-307, saec. IX, are vellum; script and contents speak for Weissenburg. The name Ermbertus in charter-hand, saec.VIII, is scratched in the upper margin of p.1.
