  • Munich Germany Bayerische Staatsbibliothek CLM 19105
Script Uncial
Date VIIā€“VIII (680 - 720)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain; a centre in North Italy is not unlikely, and the 'autem' abbreviation suggests Visigothic connection. The manuscript suffered losses at an early stage and must have been restored in the ninth century probably at Verona, if one may be guided by the typically Veronese form of g seen on the bottom line of fol. 19; the restoration leaves were palimpsested along with the older main part of the volume in the tenth century, probably in a German scriptorium. Later at Tegernsee: an ex-libris entered toward the end of the fifteenth century by the Tegernsee librarian, Ambrosius Swerzenpeck, is seen on the verso of the front fly-leaf.

Script Commentary

Script is a natural but not very expert uncial of the late type, slightly reminiscent of Cambridge, C.C.C. MS 304 (CLA 2.127): tall T and suprascript V occur at line-ends; minuscule b and r slip into the uncial text.
