Script Luxeuil Minuscule
Date VIII in (701 - 725)
Origin and Provenance

Written in France in the centre which produced the Ivrea MS of Gregory and perhaps the Missale Gothicum (CLA 1.106). The British Museum MS belonged to Samuel Butler, Bishop of Lichfield (1774–1839). It was acquired by the Museum in 1841. The Paris leaves appear to have been recovered from bindings. The single London leaf was presented by Seymour de Ricci in April, 1927. It was found loose in a book from the library of Champollion-Figeac by Etienne Deville, who presented it to de Ricci.

Script Commentary

Script is a pre-Caroline minuscule of the type to which the name 'Luxeuil' has been given: letter a in ligature rises above the line; b occasionally has a tag to the right of the stem; the bows of d and q are open when following o; suprascript u is frequent; i-longa occurs; ti ligature is used indifferently for hard and soft sound; the ligature fl is typical. Some Notae Tironianae occur.
