|Script||Anglo-Saxon and Early Caroline Minuscule|
|Date||VIII² (783 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written at Freising, in the main by the scribe Peregrinus, presumably about 783, a date fixed by the entry in his hand (fol. 87), which reads 'arbeo epis miserere ds', a prayer that must have been made not long after the bishop's death; Arbeo was bishop from 763 to 783. The manuscript belonged to the Freising cathedral library: the usual twelfth-century ex-libris stands on fol. 2; a printed ex-libris is on the inside of the front cover.

Script is almost all Anglo-Saxon minuscule by Peregrinus, whose lengthy subscription on fol. 146v begs the reader 'ut recordetur . . . indignissimi atque peccatoris qui nomine nuncupatus Peregrinus' (other manuscripts written by him are enumerated in CLM 6237, CLA 9.1253); his script breaks off several times (foll. 20, 27v, etc.) and the text is taken up by Freising hands of the type seen in CLM 6282, etc.
