Origin and Provenance

Written presumably in Ireland or in an Irish centre on the Continent, to judge by the type of liturgical book, the biblical text used, and the manuscript's later history. Rewritten in a French scriptorium with Irish connections. Belonged in the eighteenth century to a Hamburg parson named Barthold Nicolaus Krohn.
