|Date||VIII–IX (c. 797) (780 - 820)|
|Origin and Provenance||
Written presumably in the Fleury area, possibly at Fleury itself. The date is fixed by paschal tables. Part of the manuscript was copied at Fleury in the early ninth century, the copy is now Leiden Voss. Lat. Q. 86. A Fleury ex-libris saec. IX–X is seen on fol. 141 of the Bern portion. The complete manuscript belonged to Pierre Daniel (1530–1603), the Bern portion to Jacques Bongars (1554–1612), who bequeathed it to the city of Bern. The miscellany containing the Paris portion was No. 3655 in the Colbert collection and No. 5491.5 in the Royal Library.
