CLA 1482
  • Vienna Austria Österreichische Nationalbibliothek Lat. 515 (foll. 1–5)
Script Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (794 - 803)
Origin and Provenance

Written presumably in the Alemannic area in the same centre which also produced the Homily described in the next item and the slightly later manuscripts Karlsruhe Aug. CXCI and Munich CLM 6330, as is suggested by the script and confirmed by the curious misuse of the abbreviation p for post (and pus), which they have in common; certainly not written at Lorsch, from where only an older portion of this series of annals is derived. A copy of our manuscript while it was still intact, made by Reginbert about 835 at Reichenau, is now St Paul in Carinthia MS 8₁ (25. a. 8).

Script Commentary

Script is early Caroline minuscule of a South-west German type, by two scribes who wrote the entries year by year, now more compressed, now more spread out; the first scribe wrote the entries for 794, part of 795, and 796–797, the second wrote those for part of 795 and 798–803: open a prevails in the first hand; only closed a in the second; the first hand may have written the homily contained on foll. 6–8 (see next item). A poem on Christ and the Samaritan woman in German vernacular is begun on fol. 5 and continued on fol. 4v by two tenth-century hands. Another tenth-century hand entered responsoria on fol. 5v.
