  • Oxford United Kingdom Bodleian Library MS Hatton 93 [S.C. 4081]
Script Anglo-Saxon Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written in England, probably in the same Mercian centre that produced the biblical MS Salisbury Cathedral Library 117 (see CLA 2.259), to judge by graphic features which the two have in common. The MS probably belonged to Worcester: on fol. 41v is a twelfth-century copy of a letter written from the monastery of St Mary's, Worcester, to Reinaldus, abbot of Evesham.
