Script Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written in North Italy, apparently in the centre which produced the Homiliarium Alani, the remains of which are divided between Karlsruhe and Heidelberg (CLA 8.1119). The fragment was used in the binding of a copy of Jodocus Clichtoveus, Elucidatorium Ecclesiasticum (Basel, 1519), which belonged to the Benedictine monastery of Gengenbach in the Black Forest and which was destroyed in 1942. It is not known when the fragment reached Gengenbach, but its early history may have been connected with that of the Homiliarium.

Script Commentary

Script is a slightly angular early Caroline minuscule of distinctly North-Italian type, to be compared with CLA 8.1119: d has two forms; i-longa is frequent initially; u occurs v-shaped at line-end; z is often ample; ascenders are markedly club-shaped and have a tendency to lean to the left; letters are occasionally suprascript at line-end. The bow of enlarged uncial A at the beginning of sentences forms a small angle. Corrected apparently in the twelfth century.
