XIII (Altencamp the oldest Cistercian foundation in Germany—in the diocese of Cologne); on fol. 2: ‘Liber heret. contra venerat. imaginum ex Germania in italiam allatus ab III. CCASL’ saec. XVI. The Paris MS Arsenal 663 seems to be a direct copy.

Script Commentary

Script an early and graceful Caroline minuscule: letters a and n have each two forms; ri ligature at line-ends. Abbreviation-stroke often an oblique flourish. Question-mark seems by first hand. Frequent marginal comments in contemporary Notae Tironianae.
