  • Vatican City Italy Biblioteca del Vaticano Lat. 7016
Script Uncial and Minuscule
Date VIII ex (776 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Written in Central Italy. The addition of St Fridianus in the Comes (fol. 201v) points to Lucca. The haphazard mixture of uncial and minuscule in the Comes suggests the lack of a formed minuscule in the scriptorium.

Contents Testamentum Novum, Evangelia (Mt, Mc, Lc, Io); Comes.
Script Commentary

Script is a bold but not very expert uncial of the latest type: the bow of A descends from the head-line; LL run together. The Comes is written partly in smaller pure uncial, partly in uncial mixed with minuscule.
