Script Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written at Salzburg, to judge by the palaeography. The first two works of Isidore are copied from CLM 14300 (CLA 9.1294). Later our manuscript belonged to the church library of St Nicholas at Passau: the ex-libris 'S. N' (saec. XIV) stands on fol. 3 and the later one 'Iste liber est Ecclie scꞇi Nicolai Patauie' (saec. XV) stands on first and last fly-leaves and on fol. 104.

Script Commentary

Script is graceful, well-formed early Caroline minuscule by two or more scribes; the hand seen on foll. 149v and following is similar to that of CLM 5508 (foll. 166v ff.) and of Salzburg, St Peter A. 9. 16 written for Bishop Arno (784–821); the form of x, the or and nt ligatures are typical. An entry in Rustic capital saec. IX on the otherwise blank last page (fol. 296v) reads: 'EGO FOLRADVS ·P· (presbyter?) HVNC LBRM CRXV' (librum caraxavi); although the name ‘Folradus' occurs in the Ordo Sacerdotum in the Liber Confraternitatum of St Peter of Salzburg, this statement is hardly to be taken literally, since more than one scribe wrote the book and such a subscription was not usually relegated to a back fly-leaf when there was room for it at the end of the text.
