  • Wolfenbüttel Germany Herzog August Bibliothek Aug. secundo 41.1 (fly-leaves)
Script Anglo-Saxon Majuscule
Date VIII (701 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Written in an Anglo-Saxon centre on the Continent. The eleventh-century Lucan manuscript in which the two surviving folios serve as fly-leaves belonged in the fifteenth century to Murbach. There are three entries in the main manuscript (on foll. 81, 101v, and 102v) by Frater Sigismundus Meisterlin, in one of which he says that he had seen and read this and other books in 1463–1464; the entry on fol. 101v tells us that this happened at Murbach, for one can still make out the familiar Murbach formula 'orate pro domino bart[holomeo]'. On the inside of the front cover one reads: 'Matthiae Berneggeri e Biblioth. Nic. Gerbelii 1634'.
