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

Written in South Bavaria, presumably at Tegernsee, by the scribe Dominicus: 'EGO DOMINICUS SCRIPSI LIBRUM ISTUM' (fol. 1), perhaps identical with the priest of that name who in 769 wrote a charter concerning Rottbach, near Freising. He also wrote CLM 19126 (fly-leaves), 19408, parts of 6233, and the Harburg palimpsest (CLA 9.1321, 1322, 1252, and CLA 8.1216). The Tegernsee ex-libris 'iste liber attinet monasterio Tegernsee' (saec. XV ex.) stands on fol. 1.

Script Commentary

Script is a clear and pleasant early Caroline minuscule with some cursive features: a and d have two forms; uncial g is not infrequent; v-shaped u occurs at line-ends; numerous ligatures. Noteworthy is the corrector's script in the lower margin of fol. 34v; it is closely akin to that of the first hand of CLM 29121b (CLA 9.1333). Many later corrections.
