  • Rome Italy Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale Sessorianus 94 (1524)
Script Pre-Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII–IX (780 - 820)
Origin and Provenance

Written probably at Nonantola. The later history of the MS is certainly connected with that monastery: in the upper margin of the opening page (fol. 1) a familiar Nonantola hand (saec. IX) entered the table of contents: 'in hoc co continentur', etc. (see CLA 4.423). Part of a Nonantola charter containing the signature of Abbot Rodolfus (1002–1035) serves as the front fly-leaf.

Script Commentary

Script is a pre-Caroline North Italian minuscule with many ligatures, not unlike Beneventan; several hands worked on the MS: ti ligature is used indifferently for soft and hard ti; i-longa is regular; the broken c is common; is uncial with a long shaft. Numerous marginalia in Nonantola hands.
