  • Paris France Bibliothèque Nationale de France Lat. 17177 (foll. 5–12)
Script Anglo-Saxon Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, but doubtless some continental centre with Anglo-Saxon traditions. Used as fly-leaf to a MS of Hieronymus in Epistulam Pauli ad Galatas, in minuscule saec. IX, from Corbie. The two other known MSS of Theodorus also come from Corbie (London, Harley 3063 (CLA 2.200) and Amiens 88 (CLA 6.709)).

Script Commentary

Written rapidly in continental Anglo-Saxon minuscule with a fine pen: r is easily mistaken for n; d has an s-like flourish; s goes below the line.
