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

Written no doubt at Freising and apparently by the scribe who also wrote all of CLM 6307, the second part of CLM 6382 (fol. 45 ff.), and collaborated on CLM 6316 with other Freising scribes (CLA 9.1270, 9.1278, 9.1275) a fragment of a fifth manuscript by the same hand, containing Gregory’s Homilies on the Gospels, is on the back cover of CLM 17055 (CLA 9.1314). Our manuscript in its text and its Gallican liturgical notes is affiliated with CLM 4577 from Benediktbeuern (CLA 9.1243). An entry in runes on fol. 89v reads ‘nomen UOTONI’ (saec. IX?). Belonged to the cathedral library of Freising: the ex-libris (saec. XII) stands on fol. 1.

Script Commentary

Script is a pre-Caroline minuscule: f, r, and s often have a serif-like foot; typical is the form of capital Q with the two bows crossing at the base. Marginal liturgical rubrics in very small minuscule are in the hand of the scribe. A few twelfth-century corrections.
