Written presumably in North-east France or possibly in Belgium in a centre under Insular influence. It belonged to the abbey of St Peter at Ghent according to the ex-libris on fol. 3, at latest from 1200–1599 when Abbot Columban presented it to the Jesuit fathers of Antwerp (cf. the entry on fol. 3).

Script is pre-Caroline minuscule by several hands, some rather cursive with horned o, etc.: both open a and a, d and ꝺ, n and N (occasionally resembling H) are used; majuscule S also occurs in the minuscule; i-longa initially and subscript i are both frequent; ligatures include nꞇ (even in mid-word), rp, ti ligature (for hard and soft ti), xꞇ. The entry 'de seruitio domni episcopi et archidiaconi' saec. IX or X is seen on fol. 89v. The manuscript has suffered from much use as well as from damp and reagent.
