Origin and Provenance

Origin Italy to judge by the scripts: the minuscule portion is a continuation. The manuscript must have migrated early to Reichenau to judge by the corrections; the familiar Reichenau ex-libris saec. XV stands on fol. 9. Acquired by St Blasien in the Black Forest 1768–1781. Came to St Paul in 1807.

Script Commentary

Script of foll. 1–154 is a carefully formed rather imitative uncial with uprights leaning to the left and strokes often unjoined: the ligature OR occurs towards the end of a line; the minuscule script from fol. 154 onwards, of somewhat later date, is early Caroline of Italian type. Corrections by several ninth-century hands, some manifestly of the Reichenau type.
