Script Half-Uncial
Date VIII med vel VIII² (726 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless at Corbie, presumably under Abbot Leutchar, to judge by some similarity in script to the Ingreus MS F. v. I. 6 written for this abbot. Leutchar is documented as abbot in 765. Our manuscript is mentioned in the eleventh-century Corbie catalogue. Removed from Corbie to St-Germain-des-Prés, Paris, in 1638, where it received the numbers 756 and 100. Acquired by Peter Dubrowsky in 1791 and by the Imperial Library in 1805.

Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is half-uncial of the so-called Leutchar type, but differing slightly from that of Ingreus, the scribe of the signed Leutchar manuscript F. v. I. 6 (CLA 11.1602): uncial 𐌾 occurs regularly, frequently, and R and S occasionally; i-longa is used often; y has the Insular form with both branches leaning to the right and is often dotted; ascenders are club-shaped; strokes do not always join.
