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. 90vā€“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 źž‡; 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. 60ā€“61v was used for writing liturgical formulae in expert cursive almost contemporary with the half-uncial of the MS.
