|Date||VIII (701 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in an Insular, presumably Anglo-Saxon, centre on the Continent, to judge by the kind of skin used. The twelfth-century manuscript of Ailred of Rievaulx and Bernard of Clairvaux to which the surviving leaves are attached comes from the monastery of Alne. Later it formed no. 4629 in the Phillipps collection, whence it was acquired for the Bibliotheque Royale in 1888.
