Written by a scribe of modest ability either in Britain or in a Continental centre with Insular connections. Provenance St. Bertin: a twelfth-century entry of fol. 132v reads: 'Liber S. Bertini'; the familiar XIV-XV-century ex-libris on fol. 3.
Small crude initials, surrounded by red dots; capitals at beginning of sentences are daubed with red, now oxydized. Membranes prepared in the Insular manner. Script is a crude Insular majuscule by an inexpert and probably aged hand.
