Manuscript Summary
Notker the German, Old High German translation and commentary on "De nuptiis Philologiae et Mercurii" of Martianus Capella; two commentaries on the gospels from the 12th and 13th century; a translation from Latin into Old High German plus commentary on the first two books of Martianus Capella's († 439) work "The Marriage of Philology and Mercury" by the St. St. Gall monk Notker the German written in the 11th century. The two commentaries on the gospels date from the 12th and 13th centuries. The Martianus Capella part is a palimpsest, for the most part written over an older, barely legible text of the "Institutiones Grammaticae" of Priscianus of Caesarea. (smu)
