Script Early Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII ex (776 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain: a South French centre under Spanish influence seems likely; the same centre produced CLM 14674 (CLA 9.1308). The volume must have reached St Emmeram at Regensburg by the end of the tenth century, as is evidenced by the librarian's entry on fol. 152v in a hand which occurs in other St Emmeram manuscripts.

Script Commentary

Script is an early Caroline minuscule by three hands: certain groups of letters have a distinct Visigothic look (ec, ex); d has mostly the uncial form; the cedilla of e is very long and 6-shaped; v or cup-shaped suprascript u occurs at line-ends a feature much affected by Visigothic scribes. Opposite Isidore's words on fol. 109v 'heu me miserum inexplicabilibus nodis adstrictum' our scribe noted: ‘hic se Esidorus causa honoris sui deplorat'. A single Nota Tironiana occurs on fol. 142v. Neumes are seen in the margin of fol. 2.
