CLA 1505
  • Vienna Austria Österreichische Nationalbibliothek L 2141
Script Pre-Caroline and Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written in Western Germany, manifestly in the Lorsch area to judge by the script, the omission-sign, and the ninth-century corrections; the same centre apparently produced Vienna MS L 2147 (CLA 10.1506). Later history unknown. Was already in the Vienna Palatine Library early in the seventeenth century.

Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is partly pre-Caroline minuscule, partly early Caroline minuscule somewhat reminiscent of the Lorsch type; the main hand on foll. 1–34 is rather angular: a has mostly the open form; both d and are used; i-longa is frequent even in mid-word; y stands on the line and has a dot above and below its right branch; ti ligature is used for both hard and soft ti; a hand found on fol. 13 recalls the script of Vienna L 2147. Corrections and notes by ninth-century hands of the Lorsch type.
