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

Written in Northeast France in the centre which produced the Cologne manuscripts of Augustine for Archbishop Hildebald (795–819), apparently the convent of Chelles. The fragment was used as a fly-leaf in a printed book (Asc. 837) which probably belonged to the small Augustinian house at Bernried in Bavaria: an entry saec. XVI referring to the obit of 'Johan Ducziner Brobst zu Berñriedt' (†15 August 1535) is seen on the recto.

Script Commentary

Script is an early Caroline minuscule of the type seen in the three Augustine manuscripts written by nuns, Cologne Dombibl. 63, 65, and 67 (CLA 8.1152), and in other manuscripts enumerated there (see also CLA 5, p. xxii). Minor corrections in ninth-century minuscule.
