Parchment dark brown on the hair-side
Place of Origin:
Written presumably in North Italy, tojudge from the script, possibly in a sciptorium with Insular connexions.
Date of Origin:
Colophons in large black capitals mixed with uncial. Headings in red uncial. Punctuation: the colon marks the main pauses, the medial point lesser pauses. Abbreviations include the normal forms of Nomina Sacra and "quoniam". Omitted M, even in mid-line, is marked by a horizontal stroke.
Script is a bold but irregular uncial, with M mostly in a half-uncial form: the lower bow of B is broad; i-longa is used initially here and there; the second upright of N is mostly comma-shaped, recalling the practice in North Italian manuscripts.
Number of Lines:
at least 24
Ruling on the flesh-side, possibly after folding. Double bounding lines in both margins. Prickings in both margins guided the ruling.
235 x ca. 185 mm. <183 x ca. 145 mm.>
More about the Current Condition:
Two single folios, paginated 412 - 415 in a miscellany;
Belonged to St. Gall by the fifteenth century (see the entry of that date at the top of p.415).
