|Date||VIII² (751 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in some centre in Northern France, perhaps in the same scriptorium as Berlin Phill. 1743 and Kassel Theol. 4° 10 (cf. also Leiden, Univ.-Bibl. Bibl. Publ. Lat. 114) which come from Rheims and were probably written there. Later history of the manuscript unknown. Closely related in text to Paris Lat. 1451 (CLA 5.528).

Script of the main hand is a rather roundish almost Caroline minuscule of a transition period, still permitting cursive ligatures which become more numerous when space is short at the end of paragraphs: a has two forms; u near line-end is often suprascript and cup-shaped; ti ligature is used for the hard sound; the hand on foll. 157 and 172 is more compressed; the curious hand on foll. 181v, 182v, 183v ff., 186v, 189, 190 is cursive minuscule of Merovingian type, resembling some hands in Berlin Phill. 1743 and Kassel Theol. 4° 10 (CLA 8.1060, 1141) with which it shares a peculiar z that descends below the line and has a horizontal tag to the right. Some late eighth-century additions are seen on foll. 1 and 82v. The Tironian nota for 'subscripsit' occurs several times in the list of subscriptions on fol. 156. Minor corrections in ninth-century minuscule.
