CLA 66
  • Vatican City Italy Biblioteca del Vaticano Ottobonianus Lat. 66
Script Uncial
Date VII–VIII (680 - 720)
Origin and Provenance

Written apparently in North Italy. The scribe Dominicus signs on fol. 112v : ‘ORATE PRO ME DOMINICO PRESBITERO SCRIPTORE’. The occurrence of the Insular symbol for ‘autem’, the use of red dots with the capitals, and the type of figures in the illustrations suggest some Insular centre in Italy. Belonged to Cardinal Marcello Cervini (1501–55), later Pope Marcellus II.
