Script Irish Majuscule
Date VIII¹ (701 - 750)
Origin and Provenance

Written presumably in Ireland. It may have come to North Italy, as there is possibly an analogy with the later attested Milanese liturgy. Probably removed from a binding. Belonged to Henri Omont (1857–1940) whose collection was acquired in 1949–50.

Script Commentary

Script is careful but not particularly expert Insular majuscule: a is sometimes uncial when followed by e (and also once in 'Cain'); d and r have the minuscule form; n and N are both used, the former being more frequent; S is more often majuscule. The rubric is written in Insular minuscule.
