Volume / Number: 9 / 1354

CLA 1354
  • Stuttgart Germany Württembergische Landesbibliothek Theol. et Philos. fol. 208
Script Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written presumably at Saint Amand, as would appear from the close resemblance to manuscripts like Douai 12, and the others referred to above; this origin is confirmed by the formula 'A EPCS FIERI IVSSIT' contained in the long colophon on fol. 157; the 'A' probably stands for Arno, bishop, later archbishop of Salzburg (785–821) and abbot of Saint Amand. The manuscript has a fifteenth-century binding characteristic of the Benedictine monastery of Zwiefalten.

Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is a characteristic disciplined Caroline minuscule of a type seen in other manuscripts of Saint Amand and Salzburg origin (see CLA 6.758, 6.839, and 9.1237): v occurs in the -orum ending; y is short and dotted. A line of half-uncial follows a first line of coloured capitals on fol. 2.
