|Date||VIII (701 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written by Edilberict, son of Berictfrid (fol. 46), probably in the north of England. The tur-symbol points to an English scriptorium, as do the vernacular glosses, but script and decoration point to Ireland. Later in Germany, probably at Lorsch: a probatio pennae 'CUNIBRAHT' is found on fol. 46v.

|Contents||Glossa in Psalmos (39–151).|
Written in rapid and expert fine minuscule. Each psalm begins with an uncoloured initial of strikingly angular Insular type, followed by a group of larger letters often in majuscule. The bow of p has a tag which makes the letter resemble R; the cross-stroke of t is often high above the line. In the text occur vernacular glosses marked by oblique apices.
