|Script||Corbie a-b Script|
|Date||VIII² (751 - 800)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written in France, doubtless in a scriptorium not too remote from Corbie. The title of the manuscript in thirteenth-century script is seen on fol. 1, but the medieval home of the MS is unknown. It was acquired by Baluze, in whose collection it was number 330. Later numbered 4053.2 in the Royal collection (see fol. 2).
|TM Number||TM 66681|
|Contents||Isidorus, Proemia, De Obitu Patrum, Allegoriae Sacrae Scripturae; Hieronymus, Homiliae; Augustinus, Homiliae.|
Script is a poor attempt at a-b minuscule: for the pure type, see CLA 5.554; Z on fol. 47 recalls the elongated form of the a-z type. On the verso of the last folio, originally left blank, a Visigothic hand, saec. IX–X, added a hymn; another Visigothic hand added three lines in secret script: 'in te domine . . . (Ps 70.1–2) . . . libera me et eripe me'. Neumes on foll. 55v, 56 are mere probationes pennae.
