Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in Italy. The manuscript was at Fleury by the ninth century: a Fleury ex-libris in tiny Rustic capital saec. IX running down the right-hand margin is seen on fol. 1: ‘CODEX BEATI BENEDICTI FLORIAC.’ It had the number DCCCCXVII in the Rigault catalogue of 1622, the number 1005 in the Dupuy catalogue of 1645, and 5504 in the Royal collection catalogued in 1688. The binding bears the arms of Charles IX (†1574).

Script Commentary

Script is a beautiful expert uncial of the oldest type: the upper bows of B and R are very small, the eye of uncial E is high and closed; the tail of G is very small; N is broad. A ninth-century entry in the margin of fol. 1v is in a familiar hand found in other MSS from Fleury. For the portion in the Vatican library see CLA 1, p. 34.
