Origin and Provenance

Written in Italy, doubtless in the North. All the leaves known were used at Bobbio to reinforce bindings: Turin 1–2, found by Peyron, were used as a cover for Bobbio documents; 4–5 were similarly used; 3 formed part of Turin F. IV. 25, Vitae Patrum (saec. X–XI); 6–7 constituted foll. 20, 23 of Turin O. VI. 15 and were used for writing Cavalca, Trattato della Pazienza (saec. XV). The Nancy volume containing Glossa de Partibus Orationum (foll. 95; 183 x 115 mm., in minuscule saec. IX) was No. 167 in the Bobbio inventory; it was given during the nineteenth century to Nancy by M. Beaupré. The main Milan MS containing Canones et Decreta Pontificum in ninth-century minuscule was No. 82 in the Bobbio inventory.

Script Commentary

Script is a large, irregular and not very expert uncial: the tail of 𐌾 sweeps down boldly; the crossbar of N curves slightly and joins the second upright well above the base-line; the bow of R does not touch the stem; the ligature uncial Æ occurs even in mid-line; LL run together.
