Script Cursive Minuscule
Date VIII¹ (701 - 750)
Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in North Italy and probably at Vercelli, to judge by certain graphic features which the MS has in common with Vercelli 183 and by certain marginalia, entered by a contemporary reader, calling attention to Vercelli and S Eusebius. Belonged to the Bobbio library: the familiar ex-libris, but without a number, stands on fol. 1. It is number 146 in the Bobbio inventory of 1461.

Script Commentary

Script is an expert, calligraphic cursive minuscule of North Italian (Vercelli) type as is seen by the form of ꞅꞅ run together and the peculiar z, shaped like the ligature ti ending in a tail to the right, as in Vercelli 183 (Hieron. de Viris 3) and in North Italian charters; i-longa is used initially even in 'Illium', ‘Ibi'; the shoulder of r often extends above the following letter. Marginalia and comments like 'eleganter' (fol. 6) by an early reader who was particularly interested in Vercelli (see foll. 97v, 98, 106, 108v, 109). Notae Tironianae on foll. 51 bv and 124.
