Manuscript Summary
Early homiletic manuscript collection from the monastery of St. Gall, written on stiff, poorly smoothed, unevenly cut and damaged parchment, already previously used, overwritten in the first half of the 8th century with the sermons of Caesarius of Arles and the Synonyma of Isidore of Seville. Underlying script (Merovingian): a significant copy of the Old Testament Books of Wisdom, written in about 700 in southern France or Spain.
