A letter, sent by Heinrich II. von Güttingen, Abbot of Einsiedeln (1280 to 1299), to the vice-chaplain of the parish church of St. Peter and Paul on the island Ufenau, is copied onto the last page.

Parchment · 300 pp. · 10.5 x 16 cm · Einsiedeln · about 960-970
Graduale – Notkeri Sequentiae

This Codex comprises the oldest complete surviving neumed mass antiphonary; it includes assorted appendices (such as Alleluia verses, Antiphons and Psalm verses for the Communion Antiphons). Because the mass antiphonary is complete, the manuscript remains important to this day as a resource for Gregorian chant research. The second part of the codex contains the Libyer Ymnorum, the Sequences of Notker of St. Gall. Recent research has established that the codex was written in Einsiedeln itself (in about 960-970), most likely for the third abbot of the cloister, Gregor the Englishman. (lan)

Hieronimus, Expositio in Evangelium Matthaei

This manuscript contains Jerome’s commentary on Matthew; it was written in Carolingian minuscule by the scribe Subo, who signed at the end of the text (p. 267) as well as on the last page (p. 268), which today, as the inside back page, is glued to the cover. The style of the initials indicates the Rhaetian area, whereas the scribe Subo is attested at Disentis Abbey. The manuscript has been in Einsiedeln since at least the 17th century, as shown by an ex libris on page 1. (ber)

Composite manuscript with works by Jerome, Gennadius, Isidore and others

The 14th century binding is probably from Einsiedeln; certainly the manuscript was in the monastery library in the 17th century, as attested by the ex libris on p. 1. (ber)

Hieronymus, in Evangelia

The first part of this manuscript (pp. 2-261) contains the Gospel of Matthew by Jerome and a sermon attributed to Isidore of Seville (pp. 261-262), while the second part (pp. 263-378) contains a copy of the Expositio quattuor evangeliorum by Pseudo-Jerome. Various scribes wrote this manuscript in a pre-Carolingian minuscule which may show characteristics of Raetian script. The influence of the Raetian script can clearly be seen in several initials (p. 2, 5, 62). (ber)

Gregorius Magnus, Moralia in Job

This manuscript contains Gregory the Great’s Moralia in Job. It is assumed the manuscript originated in Disentis, since its Carolingian minuscule is very similar to that of manuscript 126, written by the scribe Subo of Disentis. Therefore this manuscript, too, should be dated to the first third of the 9th century. The manuscript has been held at Einsiedeln since the 17th century, as attested by an ex libris on p. 3. (ber)

Gregorius , Homiliae in Ezechielem prophetam. Liber I

This manuscript contains the homilies of Gregory the Great on the prophet Ezekiel. It is written by various hands in a minucule which in general is close to the Raetian minuscule. Some researchers attribute the manuscript to a Swiss or Raetian scriptorium. A part of pages 204 and 206 and the entire page 214 are written in uncial script. The mansucript contains numerous initials with geometric and vegetal elements, similar in style to the Remedius-Sacramentary (Cod. Sang. 348). The maniculae by Heinrich von Ligerz confirm that the manuscript was in Einsiedeln in the 14th century already. (ber)

Composite manuscript of grammatical texts

This two-part composite manuscript contains various grammatical texts. Probably the two parts were combined when the manuscript was rebound in the 14th century; since then, it has been in the Abbey Library of Einsiedeln. The first part (2-110) was probaby copied in Reichenau in the 3rd third of the 9th century. The second part (111-215) is older and was perhaps written in Reims in the 8th/9th century. Certain scholars (Bruckner) suggest that the script of the second part may be Raetian. (ber)

This manuscript contains the Venerable Bede’s Expositio of the Gospel of Mark (pp. 2-341) and a Tractatus de cruce domini (pp. 341-351) here attributed to Ambrose, but actually by John Chrysostom. According to A. Bruckner, the manuscript originated in the Rhaetian area; however, Hartmut Hoffmann assumes as origin St.-Germain-des-Prés. The ex libris on p. 3 attests to the manuscript’s presence at Einsiedeln since the 17th century. (ber)
