|Date||VIII¹ (701 - 750)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written most likely in South France and doubtless in a centre under Visigothic influence, to judge from some abbreviations, spellings, and ligatures. Belonged to the Benedictine monastery of St Emmeram at Regensburg in the later Middle Ages; it still has the characteristic jacket with the title and shelf-mark in the familiar hand of the St Emmeram librarian Dionysius Menger, who in his catalogue of 1500–01 (Munich, Staatsbibl. CLM 14675, fol. 45) describes the manuscript as follows: 'item Canones penitenciales in bona magna scriptura antiquissima et incipit De uiciis gule vel ebrietate.'

|Contents||Ps- Gregorius Magnus, Responsa ad Augustinum.|
Script is a late uncial of a French type slightly recalling that of the Gregory of Tours, Paris Lat. 17654 (CLA 5.670), and related manuscripts; ascenders and descenders are rather short; short horizontals and upper curves are often forked; the bows of B do not touch; FF and LL run together; V occurs suprascript; various letters occur in ligature with U; noteworthy is the ligature ON which is a Visigothic symptom (cf. CLA 1.111; 2.263; 5.678). The last word on fol. 41 is partly in minuscule: hABUerit.
☛Meens, Peritia 14, p. 9–12 argues the MS was written in northern France.
