Script Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII ex (785 - 798)
Origin and Provenance

Written in Salzburg. At the end of his work the scribe wrote in uncial: 'EPISC ARN' CONSTITUIT LIBRV ISTV IN SVIS TEMPORIBUS'. Arno became bishop of Salzburg in 785 and archbishop in 798; thus the manuscript is probably to be dated between 785–798.

Script Commentary

Script is a careful early Caroline minuscule of Salzburg type, closely akin to the first hand of MS a. VII. 2 (CLA 10.1460), to the second hand of Munich CLM 16128 (CLA 9.1313), etc.: a and d have two forms; the ti ligature in the Insular form occurs for soft ti. A typical Salzburg hand saec. IX in. entered some excerpts from Clemens Romanus on foll. 173–174v. A few Latin and Teutonic glosses saec. X on foll. 1 f. Many 'Nota' signs and notes saec. XI–XII.
