  • Stuttgart Germany Württembergische Landesbibliothek Theol. et Philos. Quarto 628
Script Uncial
Date VII–VIII (680 - 720)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, probably a centre with Insular connections on the Continent, to judge from the abbreviations, spelling, and the use of parchment as against vellum. The fragments were recovered from the binding of Inc. H 3550 4° which cannot be earlier than 1505; this volume belonged to the Franciscan convent at Ehingen on the Danube and later to the monastery of Wiblingen near Ulm.

Script Commentary

Script is uncial of a strange type, perhaps imitative: the bow of A is small, pointed, and hangs somewhat above the base-line; has a short stem; the tail of 𐌾 is long; LL run together; M is broad and low; ascenders and descenders are rather long. A small interlinear correction saec. IX is marked by signes de renvoi.
