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

Written at Regensburg, to judge by its palaeographical connexions. Our manuscript is a direct copy of CLM 6312 from Freising (CLA 9.1273), as a minute comparison of the two convincingly proves. It belonged to the monastery of St Emmeram at Regensburg: the rare ninth-century ex-libris seen on fol. 1 reads 'iste lib ptin& ad scm emmeramum'.

Script Commentary

Script of the main part is a well-formed early Caroline minuscule similar to that of CLM 14540 (see next item) and apparently identical with that of Vienna 1218 and part of CLM 14653 (CLA 9.1307): a regularly has the Caroline (uncial) form; uncial occurs frequently; g descends well below the line. Parts of foll. 56, 147v, 190, 215, and 215v are by other hands; the script of fol. 147v especially, with Insular and two forms of r and s, verges on Insular majuscule.
