Script Early Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written presumably at Weissenburg in Alsatia, to judge by the type of script and by the close textual affinity to the only other known manuscript of the Chronicon Palatinum, namely Vatican Pal. Lat. 277 (CLA 1.91), which comes from nearby Lorsch. The volume came into the possession of Isaac Vossius (†1689), who owned a number of Weissenburg manuscripts.

Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is an early type of Caroline minuscule seen in several Weissenburg manuscripts (cf. CLA 9, p. ix f. and 1384, 1393): a has three forms (open a, 'oc' a, and a); uncial is frequent; the horizontals of z are either cup-shaped or curve boldly above the head-line and below the base-line. The strokes at the end of the text on fol. 26 may be shorthand notes. A somewhat later hand saec. IX in. added a school dialogue on fol. 27v. Neumes are seen in the margin of fol. 27.
