Palimpsest, primary script. Two unattached folios, numbered 13 and 14 - the former is bound upside down - in a manuscript of 51 numbered folios containing an epitome of the Liber glossarum in Caroline minuscule saec. IX with corrections and additions in Irish minuscule saec. IX; original length must have exceeded 300, width ca. 195 mm. |
Written presumably in Ireland or in an Irish centre on the Continent, to judge by the type of liturgical book, the biblical text used, and the manuscript's later history. Rewritten in a French scriptorium with Irish connections. Belonged in the eighteenth century to a Hamburg parson named Barthold Nicolaus Krohn.
Small uncoloured initials can be discerned. Membranes are vellum. Script is Insular compressed majuscule verging on minuscule and doubtless Irish. Legible verses are Matt. XXV. 34 (with a typically Irish reading) and Ps. CIX. 4.
