Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in Italy, most likely in the North. Was at Bobbio by the ninth century at latest, to judge by corrections (foll. 90v–91) which are in Bobbio script. Apparently to be identified with item 26 in the Bobbio inventory of 1461.

Script Commentary

Script is a calligraphic half-uncial recalling somewhat the Ravenna Ambrosius (see CLA 4.410a-b): a is closed; i-longa frequent after ; suprascript u sometimes takes the form of a mere horizontal. On fol. 5v, a page originally blank, an eighth-century hand entered the Symbolum in half-uncial, turning to cursive minuscule towards the end to save space. The blank space extending from the lower half of foll. 60–61v was used for writing liturgical formulae in expert cursive almost contemporary with the half-uncial of the MS.
