  • Wrocław Poland University Library Rehdigeranus Akc. 1955/2 & 1969/430 (formerly fr. R.1)
Script Uncial
Date VII–VIII (680 - 720)
Origin and Provenance

Written presumably in England by a Northumbrian scribe, to judge by the general resemblance to English uncial and specifically to certain features of the Northumbrian capitulary type. It is significant that two other items (CLA, 9.1356 and 11.1664) in the same type of English uncial also contain the works of England's favourite Church Father. Was apparently on the Continent by the tenth century to judge by corrections. Later used for binding purposes.

Script Commentary

Script is graceful disciplined uncial closest to that of the previously mentioned Stonyhurst Gospel: the bow of A is distinctly pendant; N and X resemble their counterparts in the Stonyhurst manuscript; likewise the high form of T near line-end; FF run together often, LL regularly; ligatures include AE, NT, ON, TR, UT. Small corrections in Continental minuscule ca. saec. X.
