Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, most likely a centre in South France (Septimania). The volume of Aldhelm and Sedulius, saec. XI–XII, in which our bifolium serves as fly-leaves, belonged to St Peter's in Ghent; cf. the following entry in the lower margin of fol. 1: 'Lio sci Petri Gandēsis ecclie. Seruanti benedictio, tollenti maledictio. Qui abstulerit folium uel curtauerit anathema sit.'

Script Commentary

Script is a well-formed, regular half-uncial: the bow of a is full; G is regularly uncial; the shoulder of r is wavy; ligatures of ae and ui are occasionally used at or near line-end. Minor corrections by a somewhat later hand.
