  • Salzburg Austria Stiftsarchiv St Peter a X 23
Script Early Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written presumably at Salzburg, possibly by scribes from St Amand, in the time of Arno who was both abbot of St Amand (783–821) and bishop of Salzburg (785–821). For manuscripts in similar script, see CLA 10.1478, 1479, 1486, 1489 etc. and CLA 6.758 and 839, and 9.1237. The entry in the final colophon (p. 235): 'Andreae Fortunatiani iugi praece quaeso lector memineris’ is doubtless copied from a much earlier exemplar.

Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is a neat, slender early Caroline minuscule: a is the rule, open a only here and there; v-shaped u occurs in the ending 'orum' at line-end; y is short and dotted; z is small. Greek letters and words occur in barbarous forms. The Tironian symbol for usque is added here and there in the margin. A pen-and-ink drawing of a bearded man, saec. XII or XIII, stands in the margin of p. 223.
