|Origin and Provenance||
Written to complete a fifth-century Italian manuscript of Hieronymus in Ecclesiasten, presumably by an Anglo-Saxon scribe following carefully a good Italian model. About the year 700 the manuscript belonged to an abbess Cuthsuuitha, presumably of the nunnery at or near Worcester (see preceding item).

Script is a very correct, but distinctly imitative uncial; the forms of letters are not quite even; G has two forms, one with a shaded and one with a thin curved tail; short horizontals and upper curves often have forked finials; the forms of A, ꝺ, and X, taken together, point rather to England than to any other country.
