Tours. 9c med. (857-862).

Parchment. ¶ 495 x 350 mm. ¶ i(paper) + 382 + i(paper). ¶ Numbered 1-382 by modern hand. ¶ Written space: 370 x 274 mm (122 mm each column, 30 mm between columns. ¶ 51 lines (54 lines on f. 117v, so that book ends within gathering). ¶ 2 columns. ¶ Dry-point ruling, double bounding lines for each column, additional bounding lines in inner and outer margins for canon table references in quires xli-xlv (ff. 298-333); according to Rand and Jones (op. cit., p. 118), mostly new style ruling, with the following exceptions: three quires in old style and one quire half in old and half in new style, and seven quires irregular (quire iii is counted as quire I in Rand and Jones' numbering); prickings still present only for bounding lines (outer margins trimmed); text above top line. ¶ Scriptural book titles as running titles. ¶ [1], i-ii2, iii-iv8, v8-1 (one excised at front), vi-ix8, x6, xi-xvi8, xvii4, xviii-xxxvi8, xxxvii4, xxxviii-xl8, xli6, xlii-xliii8, xliv6, xlv-l8, li10-1 (one lost at end, expl. mut.), [1]. Strips cut out of bottom margins on some folia. Most prologues begin on new gatherings. First two bifolia are in original location, but according to the later signatures, at one time quires i-ii seem to have been misbound between quires xlvii-xlviii, after f. 349, before the prologue to the Pauline epistles; also according to these quire signatures, at that time there should have been an additional quire before quire i or after xlvii, perhaps only two folia, which is now lost, and which would have contained either additional prologue(s) and/or decoration. ¶ Quires are signed by 14c(?) hand, with one letter at beginning of gathering, the next letter at the end of the gathering, the next letter at the beginning of the following gathering, and so forth; the letters are accompanied by the number of an alphabet series; the quires apparently were out of order when these signatures were written, since the first quire is numbered as if it were in the fifth alphabet series; thus the signatures appear as follows (on first recto/last verso of the indicated quires): "d5/e5"(i); "f5/g5"(ii); "a/a"(iii); "b/c"(iv) ..."z/a-ii"(xiv); "b-ii/c-ii"(xv) ..."z4/a5"(xlvii); "h5/i5"(xlviii) ..."m5/n5"(l); "o5"(li, on first recto only). Presumably a missing quire would have been signed "b5/c5" (before quire i or after xlvii).

¶ 9c littera carolina for Bible texts, semi-uncialis for prologues. On three folia (5ra-va, 334ra and 350ra-b, which are the prologues for Genesis, the Gospels, and Pauline epistles) the decorative hierarchy of scripts is extended, so that entire columns of text are in uncial. ¶ One hand for all scripts. ¶ F. 2r and 303v: full-page initials in gold, silver, purple, green, yellow, red, white, black (foliate, interlace). Initials on f. 5ra and at beginning of each scriptural book: 15 lines or larger, same pallette of colors; smaller initials for prefaces to individual books. Architectural frames for Canon Tables (300v-302r) and Epistle concordance (351v-352r). Initials mark ferial divisions of Psalter (Pss. 26, 38, 52, 68, and 80). Titulus f. 1v-2r in gold square capitals; titulus f. 5r in gold rustic capitals on purple ground; elsewhere tituli and first lines in square capitals (tituli with alternate lines gold and red, and sometimes purple or blue, first lines black); or first lines in red or black uncials or square capitals followed by uncials; psalm tituli in red uncials; explicits in rustic capitals. ¶ Some contemporary and later corrections; 13c-15c marginal insertions, chapter numbers, and notes with references to another Bible (see ff. 1r, 262r-273v); human bust in lower margin f. 338v. ¶ "Liber sancti petri a pio patre herimanno datus" (9/10c, f. 1r - Herimann Abp. of Köln 890-923); "Rutgheri." (9- or 10c?, f. 1r); "Hic liber est sancti petri in colonia concessus conventui de prato sancte marie per manum domini alberti subdecani, quem idem conventus reddet sine contradictione, cum repitittus(!) fuerit a capitulo sancti petri, sicut continetur in litteris, quibus se predictus sanctimonialium conventus obligavit. Et in eo sunt multa folia truncata. Anno MCCXLI." (f. 1r, notice dated 1241, that this book was lent by cathedral to the convent of the Prata S. Mariae, also called Benden; this Cistercian convent for women was founded 1207 in the area of Brühl [about 10 km south of Cologne]; see Gallia Christiana 3 [Paris 1876], col. 796, and Montrond, Dictionnaire des abbayes et monastères (Paris 1856), col. 94); "In tabula altaris beate marie accepte sunt, pro xviiii m. argenti, xiii m. auri et dimidium" (12- or 13c, f. 1r); "Liber sancti Petri in colonia" (14c, f. 1r); 19c title and description (front cover, FPD); 20c readers' register (FPD). ¶ Secundo folio: (2) Frater ambrosius.

¶ A deluxe Tours Bible, by a master scribe with a carefully observed hierarchy of scripts, on exceptionally fine parchment. On Turonian origin, see Rand, Earliest Book, p. 120. According to the inscription on f. 1r, this ms. was presented to St. Peter's of Köln by Hermann, Abp. of Köln (890-923); Decker mistakenly identified this ms. with his nrs. 1-12 in the catalogue of 833, although if it could be identified with any entry in that catalogue, it would be the first item listed, above Decker's number 1 (op. cit. p. 224, also in facsimile after p. 251), which reads: "Bibliotheca in qua continentur omnes libri veteris ac novi testamenti." But because of the inscription regarding Herimann, and because of the paleographical dating of the manuscript to the mid-ninth century, the catalogue of 833 must refer to a different "Bibliotheca". See also Frenken, loc. cit.

Liber proverbiorum, Ecclesiastes, Canticum canticorum, Liber sapientiae, Ecclesiasticus - with Glossa ordinaria.

Northern France or Germany. 13c med.

Parchment. ¶ 352 x 225 mm. ¶ 174 + ii(paper). ¶ Numbered 1-119, 119bis (sine numero), and 120-173, by modern hand. ¶ Written space: 210 x 133 mm. Each of the three columns (1 for text plus 2 for gloss) is around 40 mm wide, with 4-8 mm between columns. Ff. 1-3 and 172 are 208 x 137 mm. ¶ 26 text lines written, 52 lines (or more) ruled for gloss (main text written every other line); except ruling for 29 or 30 text lines (59 gloss lines) on ff. 2-3 and 172, although only 26 text lines actually written on 172. ¶ 1 text column with formal gloss column on either side; sometimes text is written in long lines or continues across one gloss column. ¶ Lead ruling, single bounding lines, two lines between columns; additional single lines at gutter and edge of page to guide additional glosses; ruling added in margins whenever needed for additional glosses; line ruled at top for running titles; prickings at edge of page, mostly trimmed off, except prickings in gutter of each page for ff. 2-4 and 172-173; text below top line, except above top line when there is no gloss written above. ¶ Scriptural book titles as running titles. ¶ i1+4-1 (one added at front, lacks original 3rd); contemporary endleaves), ii-vi8, vii6 (end Prov.), viii-x8, xi10 (end Cant.), xii-xxii8, xxiii2 (contemporary endleaves), [2]. ¶ Catchwords in lower right corner, usually in ink, sometimes lead; also lead signatures I-V(ii-vi) and XI-XXI(xii-xxii), and erroneous signatures in lead crossed out on quires xiii-xxi; in quires viii and xii-xv, the first four folia are numbered I-IIII; "correctus" usually in lower left corner of last verso, in ink or lead, on quires viii-xx.

¶ 13/14c littera gothica formata (text), gothica notularis (gloss). ¶ One hand, same for text and formal gloss within written space, and same hand also on ff. 2r-3v and 172r. ¶ Pen-flourished initials 3 to 10 text-lines high, in red and blue; paragraph markers alternating red and blue, with pen-flourishing in opposite color; alternate letters red and blue in running titles; 1-line lesser initials alternating red and blue, decorated with one or two vertical lines in opposite color; flourishing on paragraph markers near lower margin extend into lower margin. ¶ Extensive extra glosses added by one hand in a semi-cursive notula, plus some added by a few more hands. Chapter numbers added at running titles and margins in lead. Pen trials f. 4v "Sancti spiritus" and 67r by same hand, "Sancti spiritus assit nobis gratia". ¶ 19c title, FC; 19c foliation and 20c readers' register, FPD; "33" (earlier shelf mark, 1r); "Iste liber sancto perinet petro ecclesie maioris" (Köln cathedrial, 15c, 2r). ¶ Secundo folio: Quod futurum est (3); mittas legem (6).

¶ Hartzheim, p. 6; Jaffé-Wattenbach, p. 3.

¶ Endleaves ff. 1-4 (or at least 2-4) and 172-173 are contemporary products by the same hand as rest of codex, and must have been together with the codex from the beginning, since the hand that writes extensive additional glosses throughout codex also writes a long paragraph on f. 4v. This glossator's work is so extensive as to constitute almost an entire second commentary; and as such the text on 4v may be considered its incipit, and the explicit is given for the last gloss on 171v.

Text scribe (including smaller initials) is of the scriptorium of Kloster Seeon, according to Hoffmann, op. cit. p. 410; this scribe of Seeon has been identified as the monk Konrad, and the illustrator as his brother Burchard, monk of Reichenau, whose death is recorded in a Seeon Martyrology-necrology (Kirmeier et al., op. cit. p. 157); previously the ms. had been thought to originate at Reichenau, because of the illustrations; date given according to Hoffmann, loc. cit.

Smaragdus, COLLECTIONES IN EPISTOLAS ET EVANGELIA; and MISCELLANEOUS WORKS

Germany. 9c 1/3.

Parchment. ¶ 323 x 230 mm. ¶ i(paper) + 100 + i(paper). ¶ Numbered 1-100 by modern hand. ¶ Written space and lines per page are different for the four booklets, as follows: Booklet I, 1-32 (quires i-iv): Written space: 235-240 x 160-170 mm. ¶ 29 lines. ¶ Booklet II, ff. 33-56 (quires v-vii): Written space: 253 x 173 mm. ¶ 36 lines. ¶ Booklet III, ff. 57-72 (quires viii-ix): Written space: 254 as ruled (245 as written) x 170-175 mm. ¶ 36 lines ruled, 35 written (last line not written on). Top margin is wider than in previous quires, so that text sits lower on page, and leaving last line blank makes text end more or less in same position as in previous quires. ¶ Booklet IV, ff. 73-100 (quires x-xiv): Written space: 245 x 170 mm. ¶ 35 lines. ¶ Entire codex: Long lines. ¶ Dry-point ruling, double bounding lines; prickings between outer pair of bounding lines, two sets on many folia; text above top line. ¶ [1], i-x8 (in iii and x, center two leaves are single [20-21 and 76-77]), xi2 (folia missing from center between 81/82, expl. mut. 81v; expl mut. also 82v, lacks quire[s] after f. 82), xii8-2 (missing original 2nd and 4th), xiii8-1 (missing original 4th), xiv8-3 (missing original 2nd, 3rd, and 4th), [1]. Fair to poor quality parchment. Lower margins excised ff. 68-69, this bifolium also bound in lower than other folia. F. 96 almost ripped out along inner bounding line, still attached near top. ¶ Quire signatures A-I on ii-x.

¶ 9c littera carolina. ¶ Two main hands: A: 1r-81v; B: 82r-100v; plus relieving hands on ff. 34v, 66v, 73v, 80v. ¶ 10-line pen-decorated initial on f. 1v, filled with orange-red and yellow, with simple interlace; elsewhere simple 3- to 7-line initials; scriptural quotes in brown uncials stroked with red and yellow ff. 1v-3r, in red uncials 3v-25r, thereafter in brown uncials; tituli in brown uncials. ¶ Marginal source references; interlinear corrections and insertions (contemporary hand), probationes. ¶ "odolfus martinus HEL" (?)(f. 95v); 19c title and description (front cover); library stamps (cover, ff. 1r, 25r, 100v); "65"(?)(earlier shelf mark, f. 1r). ¶ Secundo folio: cum mutata vocabula.

¶ Hartzheim, pp. 15-16; Jaffé-Wattenbach, pp. 6-7. ¶ A. Franz, Die kirchlichen Benediktionen im Mittelalter 2 (Freiburg 1909), pp. 587-596; Ornamenta Ecclesiae 1, pp. 435 seqq., 439; A. Wilmart, "Les ordres du Christ," pp. 305-327, this ms. p. 312.

¶ This ms. is interesting for both its contents and its irregular orthography; it is also far from a first class production in comparison to Carolingian standards, in terms of script, grammar, use of abbreviation symbols, text layout, etc. For an example of the quality, see Franz's edition (from this ms.) of text on ff. 96v-98v, and his note 2, p. 587.

2ra-3vb (1) List of Homilies. (Tit) Incipiunt capitula omeliarum origenis adamantii in genesi, exodo, levitici, ihesu nave, iudicum, regum, cantica canticorum, isayam, hieremiam, ezechiel. (Com) The homilies actually presented in the ms. do not correspond to this list (see below). There are 17 homilies listed for Gen. (numbered 1-16), 13 for Exod. (17-29), 15 for Lev. (30-44), 20 for Jos., 8 for Judges, 1 for I Sam., 2 for Cant., 9 for Is., 14 for Jer., and 2 for Ezech. (numbered 106-107). List corresponds to the homilies edited in PG 12-13, but follows the "Juxta Hieronymum"***[Hieronymiam? -J.B.] order for the Jer. homilies.
3vb-7r (2) Origen (c. 185-254). Homily 13 on Exodus. (Tit) XXX. De his qui offeruntur ad tabernaculum. (Inc) Iam quidem et prius de tabernaculo... (Expl) ...tabernaculum deo iacob, per christum.... (Ed) W.A. Baehrens, Origenes Werke 6, GCS 29 (Leipzig 1920), pp. 269-279; PG 12:387-396. (Omss) See Baehrens, Überlieferung, pp. 10-65; the present ms. is one of the isolated mss. of the C class (ibid. p. 43); see also Baehrens, ed. cit. pp. IX-XXV. (Com) This is the final homily for Exodus in editions (homily 13) and in list of Exodus homilies on ff. 2ra-3vb of this ms. The number "XXX" in the titulus would refer to the place of this homily in the continuous series of OT homilies, but the homily is presented as the sole Exodus homily in the ms.
7ra-56vb (3) Origen (c. 185-254). Homilies on Genesis. (Inc) In principio fecit deus caelum et terram. Quid est omnium principium nisi dominus (corr. ex "deus") noster... (Expl) ...quasi in morali loco posuimus. (Coloph) Explicit in levitico omeliae numero xv (!). (Ed) W.A. Baehrens, Origenes Werke 6, GCS 29 (Leipzig 1920), pp. 1-144; PG 12:145-262. (Omss) See above for Homily on Exodus. (Com) This ms. is one of the C-class that includes the pseudo-Origen Homily 17, which is a version of Rufinus' De benedictionibus patriarcharum (Baehrens, ed. cit. pp. XXVIII-XXX). Mss. of the other classes have 16 homilies for Genesis. Last sentence of Homily 17 in this ms. is shorter than version in PG edition. Most homilies have tituli, some are numbered. Colophon would have appeared after the Lev. homilies in the exemplar (Lev. series not included in this ms.).
56rb-126va (4) Origen (c. 185-254). Homilies on Numbers. (Tit) Incipit prologus in libro numero (!) ad ursatium. (Inc) (Prol) Ut verbis tibi frater beati martyris loquar... (Text) (57rb) Divinis numeris non omnes digni sunt... (Expl) ...propicius nobis fiat deus per verum finem ipsum dominum.... (Coloph) Finit omelia xx. (Ed) PG 12:383-756. (Omss) See Baehrens, Überlieferung, pp. 81-102; present ms. is one of 5 mss. in class C (p. 92). (Com) Includes only the first 20 of the 28 homilies in edition (numbered 1-20).
126va-174vb (5) Origen (c. 185-254). Homilies on Joshua. (Tit) Incipit prefatio rufini presbyteri in libro iesu nave. (Inc) (Prol) In divinis voluminibus refertur quod ad constructionem...

(Inc) Quomodo didicimus per moysen esse quaedam... (Expl) ...sermone sapientia Iesu. Cui est gloria.... (Ed) PG 13:37-58.

Ambrosiaster, COMMENTARIUS IN EPISTOLAS PAULINAS

Germany. 10c.

Parchment. ¶ 295 x 220 mm. ¶ 152 + i(paper). ¶ Numbered 1-152 by modern hand; on 132-152, numbering was corrected from 133-153. ¶ Written space: 220 x 158 mm. ¶ 34 lines. ¶ Long lines. ¶ Dry-point ruling, double bounding lines, top and bottom text lines are ruled across gutter; prickings at outer bounding line; text above top line. ¶ i-xix8, [1]. REL entirely separated from binding; no FEL. ¶ No quire signatures.

¶ Early 10c littera carolina, very small module, especially in first half of codex. ¶ One hand. ¶ Brown 9-line initial "V" on f. 2r, simple interlace (similar in style to initials in Dombibl. Hs. 137, f. 2r et alibi); other initials are simple brown square capitals, 3-7 lines, for major divisions. Red square capitals (with uncial "E") for titulus f. 1r; first lines f. 2r in brown square capitals, followed by two lines of uncials; red rustic capitals for other tituli. ¶ Marginal corrections, contemporary and somewhat later hands. ¶ "Alme confessor egidii amice gesu c." (f. 1r, 12c hand); "Liber Sancti Petri" (10c rustic capitals on f. 1v); probationes "multa quidem et alia..." (Jn 20:30), written twice on f. 152v; 19c title and foliation (FC, FPD); 20c readers' register (FPD); "88" (earlier shelf mark, f. 1r). ¶ Secundo folio: (3) Et hoc illi.

¶ Hartzheim, p. 23; Jaffé-Wattenbach, p. 11. ¶ H.J. Vogels, CSEL 81.1 (Vienna, 1966), p. XXVIII.

¶ The commentaries on Galatians and Ephesians are omitted; also the commentary on Corinthians ends incomplete and is followed on the same page by the commentary on Philippians. Hence these omissions probably were also in the exemplar of this copy.

This ms. is not identifiable with Decker, nr. 73 (see Frenken, loc. cit.).

¶ Books of Scripture seem to have been produced separately and joined to prefaces and capitula. This ms. came to Köln already in the 1st half of the 9c (where it was annotated), probably by way of Freising, where Munich, CLM 6225 was copied from it (811-836) (see B. Fischer, Lateinische Bibelhandschriften..., pp. 54 and 199; idem, "Bibelausgaben des frühen Mittelalters", p. 541; and CLA loc. cit.); cited by Fischer as the oldest of the mss. which have part of the Old Latin version of Esther before the Vulgate version ("Bibelausgaben...", p. 541). Undeciphered cryptographs on f. 56v, inside shaft of initial T (see Bischoff, "Übersicht...", loc. cit.). This ms. is not identifiable with Decker, nr. 52 ("Item ipsius [Gregorii] in job libri V in uno thomo"; see Frenken, loc. cit.); no doubt should be identified with Decker, nr. 6, "Item librum Job. tobi. judith. hester. esdra. in uno corpore".

Parchment. ¶ 340 x 250 mm. ¶ i(paper) + 184 + i(paper) ¶ Numbered 1-184 by 19c hand. ¶ Written space: 300 x 213 (105 mm for inner column (text), outer column 87 mm (commentary), 21 mm between columns), except ff. 8-15 (calendar, quire ii), which is ruled as 300 x 220 mm. ¶ Lines per page: quire i: 27; quire ii: 27 ruled, 25 written (calendar); quires iii-iv: 25 ruled, but on ff. 16ra-17vb only 23 are written (prefaces); quire v to end of codex: 23 lines for Psalm text in inner column; for gloss, 3-5 lines above and 6 lines below text ruled as long lines, plus 36-37 lines in outer column. ¶ 2 columns, except calendar ff. 8r-15v (see ruling below). ¶ Dry-point ruling, double bounding lines, with three lines between columns, except for calendar ff. 8r-15v (quire ii), which has 3 sets of 3 bounding lines, i.e. at left, center, and right side of each leaf; text above top line; prickings at outer bounding line, except near center of page (approximately at inner bounding line of outer column) in quire ii (ff. 8-15), and in both these locations in quires i and iii-iv (ff. 1-7, 16-27). ¶ [1], i8-1 (lacks one at front), ii8, iii10-2 (lacks original 1st and 5th, stub of last is wrapped back around quire ii, appearing between ff. 7-8), iv4, v8-1 (lacks original 1st, stub of last is wrapped back aroung quire iv, appearing between ff. 33-34), vi-xi8, xii6, xiii-xviii8, xix8-1+1 (original 6th leaf lost, present 6th is smaller single leaf [142] with text supplied in 12c hand; 5th leaf [141] also has lower inside corner torn out, with loss to text), xx-xxiv8 (paper pasted to entire verso of last leaf to stabilize damage [145v]), [1]. Many pages partly torn or excised (minor loss to text, modern mending), first folia badly damaged. ¶ No quire signatures.

¶ 10c littera carolina. ¶ 1 main hand; ff. 1r-7v by another hand. ¶ 10- to 14-line decorated initials (pen-drawn interlace in red); 2- to 5-line initials and minor initials rubricated; tituli in red uncials with square-capital A; first phrases usually in rustic capitals (or mixed majuscules); gloss on titulus in red minuscules; rubrication in quires i-iv in minuscules and rustic capitals, except in square capitals and uncials filled with purple and green f. 1r. ¶ Occasional marginalia; two added passages with neums; a few small pen sketches of animal and human heads (added later); formal gloss on Psalter (for arrangement, see ruling above). ¶ 19c title, FC; 19c foliation and readers' register, FPD; library stamps. ¶ Secundo folio: ut qui in.

¶ Hartzheim, pp. 27-28; Jaffé-Wattenbach, pp. 14-15, 106-109. ¶ DACL 3.2:2188 and 2193; H. Hoffmann, Buchkunst und Königtum 1, p. 466; R. Kottje, "Schreibstätten und Bibliotheken in Köln Ende des 10. Jahrhunderts", Kaiserin Theophanu. Begegnung des Ostens und Westens um die Wende des ersten Jahrtausends 1 (Köln 1991), pp. 153-163, this ms. pp. 155-163; A. von Euw, Ornamenta Ecclesiae 1, pp. 434 sqq.; J.M. Plotzek, "Zur Initialmalerei des 10. Jahrhunderts in Trier und Köln," Aachener Kunstblätter 44 (1973), pp. 110-115; G. Zilliken, "Der Kölner Festkalendar," Bonner Jahrbuch 119 (1910), p. 29.

¶ Calendar and Litany show the ms. to be for the use of Cologne (see Plotzek, op. cit.). A. von Euw (Ornamenta Ecclesiae 1, p. 437) would have the origin of this ms. be St. Gall, with the exception of the Litany (ff. 182v-184r) which he says could have been written at Köln; Hoffmann (loc. cit.) places the origin of the whole ms. at Köln, between the years 993-996. R. Kottje, loc. cit., also argues for the origin at Köln, citing similarities of the script to that of Köln, Dombibl. Mss. 53 and 143 (written at Köln, late 10c), as well as the "weitgehende Übereinstimmung" between the script of the main part of the ms. and that of the litany. Otto III is referred to on f. 184r as King Otto, thus the date must be before his crowning as emperor in 996 (Hoffmann loc. cit. and Kottje p. 161 note 37). The entry of St. Ulrich, in the Calendar by the main scribe (f. 11v), gives the ms. its terminus post quem: Ulrich, bishop of Augsburg, died in 973, was venerated soon after as a saint, and was officially recognized by Pope John XV in 993 (Hoffmann and Kottje, locc. citt.). Hence the postulation by Kottje (p. 160), that the ms. was copied in Köln from an examplar of Southern Germany.

Quires i, ii, and iii-iv are separate units of production, but seem to be intended to be parts of same book, with the possible exception of quire i (Officia per ferias), which is in a darker ink by a different scribe, but has the same type of orange-red ink for rubrication.

¶ Written in time of Bp.

This ms. is one of the four Bischoff named as being among those which without any doubt originated at Köln ("Panorama...", loc. cit.). Listed in the Köln catalogue of 833. According to the editor of the text (CCSL 75, pp. x-xii), most of this ms. is copied from the same exemplar as Paris, BN lat. 12155, which is written in the second half of the 8c in "ab" script (see Omss below). 14c notes at end of quires xii(92v), xiv(108v) and xv(116v) indicate the proper order for reading the text, since quire xv belongs betweem xii and xiii (see also text commentary below).

¶ This ms. was identified by B. Bischoff as being most probably written at Corbie, since in this ms. center of quires show the flesh side of the parchment and also the direct impression of the ruling (as communicated to the Dombibliothek in 1969 by T.A.M. Bishop, whom Bischoff informed of his opinion; on the codicology of Corbie mss. see T.A.M. Bishop, "The Script of Corbie: A Criterion", Litterae textuales: Varia Codicologica: Essays presented to G.I. Lieftinck, I (Amsterdam 1972), pp. 9-16). This ms. is included by D. Ganz, loc. cit., in list of "Manuscripts written at Corbie for export".

AUGUSTINE, ENARRATIONES IN PSALMOS 1-50.

Chelles, written for Köln. 8/9c (785-819)

Parchment. ¶ 370 x 285 mm. ¶ i(paper) + 264 + i(paper). ¶ Numbered 1-264 by 19c hand. ¶ Written space: 280 x 215 mm. ¶ 34 lines. ¶ Long lines. ¶ Dry-point ruling, double bounding lines; text above top line; prickings at outer bounding line. ¶ Running title at top of ff. 2v-3r: "Expositio / aurelii augustini". ¶ [1], i1+8 (f. 1 added as contemporary flyleaf but now separated from quire, pasted on paper strip and attached to FEL), ii-ix8, x12+1 (one added [84] after 10th), xi-xxxi8, xxxii8+2 (singles before and after 8th, last leaf [264] now bound in by means of strips of paper pasted on at gutter), [1]. ¶ Quire signatures I-XXXII; quires xxix and xxx mislabeled as XXX and XXIX; signature XXXII on f. 263v.

¶ Littera carolina, "nun's minuscule". ¶ Three hands: A (Girbalda): ff. 2v-86v (quires i-x); B (Gislildis): 87r-174v (xi-xxi); C (Agleberta): 175r-264r (xxii-xxxii plus 264r) (see scribal colophons below). ¶ 3- to 6-line pen-decorated initials (brown outline re-stroked with red, filled with bands of colors: red, violet, green, gray or tan), or simple initials; tituli and pericopes in red uncials, the so-called "N-uncial" (see CLA 6, pp. xxi-xxii); f. 2v pericopes also in brown uncials touched with color; incidental initials often stroked with red. See discussion of the decoration in this and related mss. in Bischoff, op. cit. below, esp. pp. 24-25. ¶ Occasional marginal corrections. ¶ Former foliation note "Habet folia 264" and readers' register, FPD, both visible on film but now removed from codex, new FPD and FEL since filming; "67" (earlier shelf mark, f. 1r); "Codex sancti petri sub pio patre hildebaldo scriptus" (bis, f. 1r; Hildebald, Abp. of Köln 785-819). ¶ Scribal colophons: 86v: "Girbalda scripsit"; 174v: "Gislidis scripsit"; 263v: "Agleberta scripsit". ¶ Named scribes: Girbalda, Gislildis, Agleberta, nuns of Chelles. [Another ms. written by some of the same scribes as Köln 63, 65 and 67 was pointed out to Bischoff by Wilhelm Köhler (Bischoff, loc, cit. below, p. 20), namely Berlin, Phillips 1657 (from St. Vinzenz, Metz?). Five signatures can be read in whole or in part in that ms., although they are erased. The names are Gisledrudis (f. 28v), Girbalda (65v), Gislildis (102v), -drudis (128v), Adruhic (161v). The Berlin ms. is the final volume of another series of the same text on the Psalms by Augustine, in an abridged version.] ¶ Secundo folio: (f. 3r) et eis in fiducia.

Reg. lat. 316 und die Schule von Chelles," Archiv für Geschichte des Buchwesens 16 (1976), col. 1-142, companion ms. 67 discussed col. 34-100 passim; E.H. Zimmermann, Vorkarolingische Miniaturen (Berlin 1916), text pp. 13, 78, 84, 219-220 (and Taf. 141 from Hs. 67).

¶ First codex of set of three (with Hss. 65, 67, and FPD in Hs. 97) written by nuns, who Bischoff (loc. cit.) showed were most probably working at the convent Chelles, near Paris; written for Abp. Hildebald of Köln; previously assumed by Jones, opp. citt., to be written in Köln, on the basis of the Hildebaldan ex libris; as E.A. Lowe stated, "It is quite clear that the nuns who wrote these books did not belong to the school of Cologne.... The scriptorium ... must, of course have been a convent of importance" (CLA 6, p. xxii). Two other copies of this text of Augustine were written at the same scriptorium in the same time period (see scribal colophon above and Omss for text below).

Bischoff's arguments in favor of Chelles as the home of Köln, Dombibl. Hss. 63 + 65 + 67 is worth summarizing here: These mss. are part of a group of mss. which E.H. Zimmermann (locc. citt.) had already identified as the "nordostfränkische" group (lists of mss. in CLA VI, p. xxii, and Bischoff, op. cit. p. 21). The Gelasian Sacramentary is the most famous item in the group, which includes mss. written in "N-uncial" and in "b-minuscule", as well as in the "nuns' minuscule", so named from these Köln mss. Chelles seems the most likely candidate for the home of this Northeast French scriptorium. Since its foundation in the middle of the 7c by Balthild, the Anglo-Saxon queen of Clovis II, Chelles' regal connections continued, reflected in its name 'la royale'; and Anglo-Saxon influences are reflected in the decoration of this group of manuscripts [see also McKitterick, op. cit. on further Anglo-Saxon connections]. The abbess of Chelles during the period when the Köln mss. were produced was Gisela, sister of Charlemagne, and her neice Rodtrud also was at the abbey. Letters written between these two women and Alcuin show that the royal ladies were avid readers of spiritual books, that Alcuin himself sent them books, and that books were copied at Chelles; and Alcuin's correspondence to other women does not include such book-related topics (see Bischoff, op. cit. p. 27). The abbey's ties to the royal court provide an obvious connection with Hildebald, who was Charlemagne's court chaplain. The lack of a carolingian list of names for the nuns at Chelles, plus the disappearance of all traces of their library, has conspired to obscure what must have been a very active scriptorium, with a wide area of dissemination for its books (op. cit., pp. 29-30).

Recent discovery of Chelles relic labels which include handwriting in the same script as these Cologne mss. has confirmed Bishoff's hypothesis (see Atsma and Vezin, op. cit. above, and D. Ganz and ******). On Chelles and other nuns' scriptoria, see McKitterick, op. cit.

Parchment. ¶ 260 x 210 mm. ¶ i(paper) + 57 + i(paper). ¶ Numbered 1-57 by 19c hand. ¶ Written space: 188 x 145 mm. ¶ 25-26 lines. ¶ Long lines. ¶ Dry-point ruling, double bounding lines, top and bottom text lines extend across gutter; text above top line; prickings at edge of page, most trimmed off. ¶ [1], i-vi8, vii8+1 (one added at end), [1]. ¶ Quire signatures I-VII, with VII on 8th leaf [56].

¶ Littera carolina. ¶ Three main hands in same style: A: ff. 1v-32r (quires i-iv, Prosper) and 57v; B: 33r-34r, 34v, 36v, 49r-54r; C: 34r-48v (with relief by B) and 54v-57r. The calligraphic hand A is the same as the main hand in Köln, Dombibl. 200, ff. 1r-140v (Priscian) (hand described in L.W. Jones, The Script of Cologne, pp. 71-73; but see comment below). ¶ 2- to 3-line simple black initials; tituli in fine rustic capitals, partly in red; first lines sometimes in rustic capitals. ¶ Very few marginalia. ¶ 19c title, FC; readers' register, FPD; "147" (or 145?) (earlier shelf mark, f. 1r). ¶ Secundo folio: (3) -rum creatrix frustra.

¶ Hartzheim, pp. 42-43; Jaffé-Wattenbach, p. 26. ¶ J.E. Chisholm, The Pseudo-Augustinian Hypomnesticon Against the Pelagians and Celestians, 2, Paradosis 21 (Fribourg 1980), pp. 45, 79, 83; Decker, Manuskriptensammlung, p. 250, nr. 102; G. Frenken, "Zu dem Kataloge der Dombibliothek von 833," in: K. Löffler, Bibliotheksgeschichte, p. 54; C. Jeudy, "Nouveaux fragments de textes grammaticaux", Revue d'Histoire des Textes 14-15 (1984-1985), pp. 132-133, and note 1, p. 133.

¶ First scribe is same as in Ms. 200, which Jones in The Script of Cologne, p. 71-73, attributed to Cologne and dated to the time of Bp. Hermann (890-923). Bischoff included this ms. and Ms. 200 as part of a "moselländische Gruppe" (Lorsch im Spiegel..., p. 80 note 110); and according to C. Jeudy, loc. cit., Bischoff indicated that Ms. 200 is specifically from Prüm, dated 9c 2/3. Both this ms. and 200 have same type of page layout, with bounding lines and text lines ending neatly at the corners of the written space, and text lines do not enter the space between bounding lines; style of flourishes around quire signatures are the same in both mss. This ms. is not identifiable with Decker, nr. 102 (see Frenken, loc. cit.). According to J.E. Chisholm, op. cit. vol. 2, p. 45, "The contents of this codex are identical with those of St. Gall 29 and Boulogne-sur-Mer 48, and are in exactly the same order." These other mss. were probably written in St. Gall and Alsace respectively, according to B. Bischoff (see Chisholm ibid. pp. 42-43).

Parchment. ¶ 227 x 190 mm. ¶ i(paper) + 90 + i(paper). ¶ Numbered 1-90 by modern hand. ¶ Written space: 175 x 142 mm. ¶ Booklet I ff. 1-74, quires i-ix: 28 lines. Booklet II, ff. 75-90, quires x-xi: 35 lines, within same written space as rest of codex. ¶ Long lines. ¶ Dry-point ruling; double bounding lines; prickings at inner line of outer pair in quires i-ix (Booklet I), at outer line in x-xi (Booklet II), at both locations in quire v; text above top line. ¶ [1], i-viii8, ix10 (end of De arithmetica, end of hand A), x8, xi10-2 (lacks two at end, no loss to text), [1]. First and last folia damaged from wear; frequent irregular leaves of parchment. ¶ Quire signatures I-X.

¶ Littera carolina. ¶ Two main hands: A: 2r-74v (booklet I); B: 75r-90v (booklet II). ¶ 1- to 2-line intitials stroked with green, tan and/or red. Hand A: tituli in red rustic capitals, first line in rustics stroked with green, tan or red; diagrams. Hand B: tituli in red uncials. ¶ Corrections and a few notes, contemporary to 11c, 15c on f. 76r; one of the 10c annotators (e.g. f. 33r, 87r) may also have added the material on f. 1v. ¶ 19c title, FC; 20c readers' register, FPD; "175", earlier shelf mark in red, f. 1r; library stamps. ¶ Secundo folio: consilii moram.

¶ A well-corrected and well-used book. Corrections probably by hand A are seen in hand B's text-section f. 75r; and corrections by hand B in A's section, e.g. ff. 64r and 69r. Although the two booklets have different number of lines per page, they have the same written space and same colors for rubrication and same treatment of initials; they are clearly contemporary products of the same scriptorium, probably bound together from the beginning and so should be treated as a single manuscript. In the time of Hartzheim or before, this school book was assigned a codex number in the sequence of church fathers, rather than among the other liberal arts, probably because of the presence of the Cassiodorus text. Not identifiable with Decker, nr. 104.

COMPUTISTICAL TREATISES, including Calendarium Coloniense, Scholia in Arati Phaenomena, works of Jerome, Isidore, Bede, etc.

Köln. 8/9c (dated 798 and 805).

Parchment. ¶ 365 x 265 mm. ¶ vii + 219 + i. ¶ Numbered 1-219 by modern hand. ¶ Written space: 273 x 203 mm. ¶ 38 lines. ¶ Long lines. ¶ Dry-point ruling, double bounding lines; prickings at outer bounding line; text above top line. ¶ [7], i1+8+1, ii4, iii-iv8, v6, vi-vii8, viii6, ix8, x6-3, xi-xix8, xx4, xxi-xxiii8, xxiv4-2, xxv-xxvii8, xxviii6+2 (signature on 6th, two singles at end were previously a separate bifolium), xxix8, xxx6+2 (two added at end, signature on 6th), [1]. ¶ Quire signatures V, VI, XI, XIII- XXIII, XXVI-XXVIII, XXX(xxix)-XXXI(xxx) visible entire or partly trimmed; XXVIII and XXXI(xxx) on 6th (see collation).

¶ Littera carolina. ¶ Many hands. ¶ At least 16 major tituli in square capitals (usually red), usually with uncial E, often with uncial h and/or D; lesser tituli and capitula titles in uncials (normally red); tituli twice in rustic capitals (addition on 69v, and 204r); 9- and 5-line plaitwork initials on 2r and 5r. Through most of codex, initials are 2 to 11 lines, pen-decorated in red and black in simple designs; 1- to 4-line incidental initials, red and/or black; diagrams and rotae in black, red, green. Different decoration on ff. 146r-171v (quires xxi-xxiv, Scholia in Arati Phaenomena), with multicolored initials up to 15 lines, in Insular-influenced style (reddish brown, orange-red, green, tan, gray-blue); initials on 146r-153v are more elaborate, including beast and bird heads, (also human head on 146r), with red-dot decoration; astrological illustrations on ff. 154v-167r, the following painted in colors: moon 154v (winged Selene with cresent on head, in chariot drawn by two horses), Arcturus Minor et Maior 155r-v, Serpens 156r, Hercules 156v; other constellations added later in ink outline (poor quality work), some done in part or left blank; in this Aratus section, tituli are also in square capitals with a few uncial letters (as in rest of codex), but smaller than elsewhere, and here also stroked with colors; likewise incidental initals stroked with colors.

¶ This manuscript is a collection of texts from Irish and Anglo-Saxon schools, according to W. Stevens, "Sidereal Time...", loc. cit. This is one of the four manuiscripts which Bischoff named as being among those which without any doubt originated at Köln ("Panorama...", loc. cit.); this ms. is probably also listed in the Köln catalogue of 833. Evidence for origin at Köln includes owner marks ff. 1r and 219v (mention of Hildebald and Charlemagne), Calendarium ff. 72v-76r, and notes added in paschal tables f. 76v. Uniform page layout, similar rubrication, and quire signatures written by text hands indicate that the codex was intended as a unified book, although built up from booklets of various texts, apparently begun in 798 and completed in 805; ff. 2-14 (quires i-ii) may be the earliest part of the codex, where text on 14v calculates the current date as A.D. 798, which is also 1st year of paschal table f. 76v; or this ms. may be copied from an exemplar dating from 798; date 805 given as current year ff. 55r and 76r. Quires xxi-xxiv form a booklet with distinctively more elaborate decoration; elsewhere there are blank pages or half-pages at ends of some quires; changes of hand usually occur between quires. As noted by C.W. Jones, Bedae Pseudepigrapha, p. 115, this ms. is "one of the most important of the early computistical manuscripts in every respect, but the texts are carelessly copied." The many errors remain, for the most part, uncorrected. Not identifiable with Decker, nr. 36 ("Item Bedae de temporibus), which could be Hs. 103, unless Hs. 103 is Decker's nr. 92 ("Compotum Bedae vol. I")(see Frenken, loc. cit.); Hs. 83-II should be identified with Decker's nr. 91.

Zinner, Verzeichnis der astronomischen Handschriften des deutschen Kulturgebiet (Munich 1925), nr. 705. Referring to this ms. in relation to the other extant illustrated Carolingian mss. of this text, McGurk (op. cit. p. 319) writes, "The most beautiful of the group, its quality and its early date suggest that it might be close to an exemplar at the palace." This text, known as the Revised Aratus Latinus, probably dates to the 8c, and is based on the anonymous prose translation (Aratus Latinus, probably 7c) of Aratus' Greek, plus scholia (3c) to the translation of Aratus by Germanicus Caesar. See McGurk, op. cit. p. 318, for more on the relationship of this text to the original poem of Aratus and other Latin versions.

¶ Littera protogothica. ¶ 2 hands - A: 1r-148v and 197r-200v; B: 149r-196v. Ff. 1ra-4vb appear to be written at same time as 197ra-200vb, with same type of pen (more shaded look than hand

A has through most of codex); scribe wrote additional texts in the leaves which remained of his last quaternion (ending main text on first verso of this last quire); size of written space is different in these first and last folia of the codex; first quire may have been placed at front as protection for the illustrated title page f. 5r. ¶ Ff. 1ra-4vb: 3- to 6-line red initials, incidental initials stroked with red; rest of codex: 11- to 14-line decorated initials (interlace, foliate, animals: dogs and lions, dog heads, griffon [132ra]; interlace pattern usually left white, interstices and backgrounds, leaves and figures are colored red, green, brown and yellow), 45-line "I" f. 7r, and decorations around quire signatures in same style (including snake, dogs or lions, birds); titulus f. 5r in full page of black and red square capitals within a pair of architectural arches, man seated on pillow at top of arches (Job?) with lilies in his hands; major tituli and colophon 197v in same lettering as on 5r; minor tituli in red or black minuscule, rustic capitals or mixed majuscules; first words in square capitals or mixed majuscules. ¶ Frequent marginalia especially near front of codex, mostly nota signs; also notes in lead (13c) f. 16r, 17v; titulus f. 5r repeated in 15c hand. ¶ 19c title, FC; readers' register, FPD; "6" (earlier shelf mark, f. 1r). ¶ Secundo folio: exemplo. deinde cum.

¶ Hartzheim, pp. 47-48; Jaffé-Wattenbach, p. 31. ¶ Decker, Manuskriptensammlung, p. 247, nr. 82.

¶ First gathering apparently contemporary but added to rest of codex (see quire signatures, hands, decoration, and written space, above). A number of passages have marks for stress accent, especially monosyllables, proper names, compound forms, longer words and verb forms.

GREGORY THE GREAT, HOMILIAE XL IN EVANGELIA.

Germany. 9c, 1/3.

Parchment. ¶ 350 x 245 mm. ¶ i(paper) + 151 + i(paper). ¶ Numbered 1-151 by 19c hand. ¶ Written space: 250 x 173 mm (inner column 73 mm, outer column 68 mm, 32 mm between columns). ¶ 27 lines. ¶ 2 columns. ¶ Dry-point ruling, double bounding lines for each column; text above top line; prickings at outer bounding line. ¶ [1], i-xviii8, xix8-1 (one lost at end, expl. mut.), [1]. Much of codex is damaged by moisture etc.; first two and last quires are especially damaged, repaired with modern parchment and also misbound. Correct order of folia should be: quire i: 1, 2, 4, 3 / 6, 5, 7, 8; ii: 12, 11, 9, 10 / 15, 16, 14, 13; xix: 145, 146, 148, 147 / 150, 149, 151. Nine quires lost from between xiv and xv [112-113], two quires lost between xvii and xviii [136-137], and last leaf lost. ¶ Quire signatures II-XIV, XXIIII-XXVI (on xv-xvii), XXVIIII (xviii) (I covered with mending material; II on f. 13v; XIV mostly trimmed off).

¶ Littera carolina, except f. 1r in small rustic capitals mixed with minuscules, and 1v-2r in uncials; "ic" form of "a" on ff. 129v-130v, 140v, 148r, as well as "cc" and regular caroline form. ¶ Several main hands, various minor hands. ¶ 6-line decorated "D" f. 4v (simple interlace with bird design, brown with red and green fill in places, partly obscured by mending material), elsewhere 3- to 6-line pen-decorated initials (simple letters or elementary plaitwork, geometric designs); tituli in handsome red uncials, some faded to white or darkened; some first lines in black uncials. ¶ Few marginalia; interlace practice 134v; small dragon or composite beast added 149v. ¶ 19c title, FC; readers' register, FPD. ¶ Secundo folio: (3) signa uero in sole.

¶ Hartzheim, p. 49; Jaffé-Wattenbach, p. 32. ¶ Decker, Manuskriptensammlung, pp. 226 and 239, nr. 51; H. Mayr-Harting, "Ruotger, the Life of Bruno and Cologne Cathedral Library", Intellectual Life in the Middle Ages, pp. 52-53.

¶ In light of the missing quires at two places, this codex could have been originally three separate volumes, as suggested by Mayr-Harting (loc. cit.), and might then be the three volumes listed in the catalogue of A.D. 833.

LECTIONARIUM; and SACRAMENTARIUM (incomplete)(ad usum Coloniensis Ecclesiae Metropolitanae).

Köln (?). 11/12c.

Parchment. ¶ 268 x 190 mm. ¶ iii(paper) + 212 + i(paper). ¶ Numbered 1-212 by 19c hand. ¶ Written space: 210 x 150 mm. ¶ 24 or 23 lines. ¶ Long lines. ¶ Dry-point ruling, double bounding lines, top and bottom text lines go to edge of page and across gutter; text above top line; prickings at edge of page. ¶ [3], I8, ii10 (central bifolium is contemporary smaller sheet, folia are 138 x 94 mm), iii-xxii8, xxiii4, xxiv-xxv8, xxvi8+1 (one added after 6th), xxvii4+1 (one added at end), [1]. ¶ No quire signatures.

¶ Littera carolina. ¶ One hand ff. 1v-171r, many hands thereafter. ¶ 1- to 4-line simple red initials; tituli in red mixed majuscules or minuscules, except black mixed majuscules stroked with color ff. 172r-174v, 179v-180r (also first lines of ordo missae 179v). ¶ Added phrases in margins with neumes ff. 34v-35r, 155v-156v; additional texts ff. 202v-204r. ¶ 19c title, FC; "132" (earlier shelf mark, FELiiir). ¶ Secundo folio: faciet populum suum.

¶ Several quires lacking between ff. 198-199; ff. 1-171 (lectionary) perhaps a separate manuscript originally; relation of ff. 172-178 and last few folia to rest of codex is unclear; ff. 13-14 quarter-size sheets, added 12c; folia at front and end of codex especially damaged. Codex presumably was used by the Confraternity of St. Lambert, whose members are listed ff. 1r and 211v-212r (12/13c); no external evidence for this confraternity has been found, outside of this codex; possibly associated with the chapel of St. Lambert which is known to have been located at the northwest corner of the Köln Cathedral complex, by the north gate in the old Roman wall.

(with Köln, Dombibl. 137) supposed to have been used by Pamelius, op. cit., for the first attempt at a critical (or at least comparative) edition of the Gregorian sacramentary; Pamelius' version, however, is a melange of various mss. (see Amiet, loc.cit.). This ms. is perhaps derived from a St. Gall exemplar (attribution of prologue Hucusque [f. 104v] to Grimoldus, presumably Abt. of St. Gall 841-872 (Bourque, loc. cit., note 49; DACL, loc. cit.). Disagreement on date: Hartzheim, 10c; Jaffé-Wattenbach (and others following), 11c or 12c; Amiet, 9c 2/2; Hoffmann, 10c 2/2 (Trier additions 10c 4/4, main part of ms. slightly earlier).
