Script Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (776 - 844)
Origin and Provenance

Written at Verona in the time of Pacificus (776–844). Provenance the Freising cathedral library. Must have reached Freising soon after it was written, since an early ninth-century copy of it exists in Freising script (CLM 13084, foll. 1–47). The familiar twelfth-century ex-libris stands on fol. 1, and a printed ex-libris is on the inside of the front cover.
