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

Written no doubt at Freising, by the same scribe who wrote CLM 6229 (q.v.). The volume early formed part of the Freising cathedral library, as is evidenced by the ninth-century copy of Bishop Erchanbert's letter entered on fol. 44, the first leaf of our manuscript. There is good ground for considering that both our manuscript and CLM 6297 written by the Anglo-Saxon Peregrinus derive from a common Anglo-Saxon ancestor.

Script Commentary

Script is an early minuscule: v-shaped u occurs at line-ends; Q has the curious form in which the two arcs cross at the base. Slight corrections by an Insular hand are seen on foll. 47v and 54.
