|Date||VIII–IX (780 - 820)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in North-east France or possibly Cologne, as script and ornamentation in the type developed by the nuns of Chelles suggest; the MS has close affinity with the group of three MSS of St Augustine (Cologne, Dombibliothek 63, 65, 67) written by nuns for Hildebald, Archbishop of Cologne (785–819). Belonged to St Faron, Meaux, till the French Revolution, then to Gosselin, later to Remusat, at whose sale it was bought by Messrs Payne, the London booksellers, in 1833.

Every sentence begins with a capital framed in red. Headings of lessons in alternating red and green uncial. Parchment well prepared. The minuscule seems fairly well-advanced Caroline; the uncial is of a definite North-eastern French type, with the first vertical stroke of N inclined to the right, the second to the left. On foll. 127 and 127v are additions saec. IX–X.
