Origin and Provenance

Written most likely in England, possibly in an Anglo-Saxon centre on the Continent. Our fragment was removed from the binding of a fifteenth-century Latin-German prayer book, which belonged to cardinal János Simor, archbishop of Esztergom (†1891). It could not be located in 1963 (teste L. Mezey).

Script Commentary

Script is not very expert Anglo-Saxon minuscule with a considerable admixture of majuscule: a and s are regularly majuscule; d and r have two forms.
