Origin and Provenance

Written at Freising, to judge by certain features our manuscript has in common with CLM 6312 (9.1273). The volume later belonged to the cathedral library: the familiar twelfth-century Freising ex-libris stands on fol. 1.

Script Commentary

Script is a fairly graceful minuscule, apparently by one hand, closely related to the hand seen in CLM 6312, fol. 23 (see 9.1273): characteristic are the ligatures OR, UR, US; noteworthy is the variety of forms of capital Q. The formula ‘DEO GRATIAS AGO FINIT’ has an Irish flavour; all the texts in the volume suggest an Irish connection.
