Volume / Number: 9 / 1393

CLA 1393
  • Wolfenbüttel Germany Herzog August Bibliothek 81
Script Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII² (772) (772 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Written in Southwest Germany, most likely at Weissenburg, where historical and necrological entries were made as early as the late eighth century. The date seems to be fixed by the paschal table (fol. 4) which begins with the year 772, not the first year of a cycle. The text of the Martyrology suggests an ancestor from St Wandrille. Came to Wolfenbüttel in 1690.

Script Commentary

Script is early Caroline minuscule by two hands: a has two forms with open a predominating; uncial G here and there, likewise R; the nt ligature occurs even in the middle of a word; ti ligature is used for hard and soft ti. Letter A in the uncial has the capital form, as in a hand of Weissenb. 24 (CLA 9.1384). Numerous additions in the martyrology in minuscule saec. VIII ex. and IX in. refer to Weissenburg.
