Origin and Provenance

Origin uncertain, but quite probably Bobbio. The Bobbio MSS came into the Ambrosiana in 1606, or soon after, as gifts from Cardinal Federico Borromeo, who had them from the monks of St Columbanus at Bobbio. The older MSS of the Ambrosiana have an ex-libris by Antonio Olgiati, its first Prefect.
