For the part of the Vatican MS., foll. 1-33, see C.L.A., 1.5a. At one time the 'Ambrosiaster', now the Florence MS., occupied a position in the Vatican MS. between the Augustinus in Epist. Pauli (with which the quire-marks are continuous) and the Ps.-Augustinus, Hypomnesticon. Foll. 93 (18 in Vatican - foliated 34-51 - and 75 in Florence; ca. 265 X 195 mm.
Written in North Italy in an Insular centre. The whole MS. was inserted in its present place among the Vaticani by Cardinal Mai to replace a printed book. The Laurentian MS. has on a paper fly-leaf the arms of 'Le Comte D. Boutourlin' and later belonged to Lord Ashburnham.
Script is a debased Irish minuscule, crowded and ungainly, apparently under continental influence, but some contemporary marginalia are in pure Insular.
