Script Pre-Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written no doubt in Southern Germany and apparently at Freising, to judge by its affinity to CLM 6305 (q.v.). Belonged to the cathedral library of Freising by the year 1000 since additions were made to our volume by Antricus, the Freising magister scholae of that time (see note on fol. 44). The familiar twelfth-century ex-libris stands on fol. 1; a printed ex-libris is on the inside of the front cover.

Script Commentary

Script, by a rather inexpert scribe, is early minuscule recalling the Alemannic type and very similar to, if not identical with, that of CLM 6309 (CLA 9.1272); the script of our volume is seen also in CLM 6305 (CLA 9.1269) which must have been written at Freising; noteworthy ligatures are ei, fi, nt (even in mid-word), and ti ligature for unassibilated ti.
