Manuscript Summary
Palimpsest Manuscript with texts from the 8th (upper script band) and 5th (lower script band) centuries. The manuscript consists of a fragmentary copy of great importance in the field of textual study, from Italy, written in Roman Uncial script, containing passages from books 1 through 6 of the work Divinae institutiones (Divine Instructions) by Roman author Lucius Caelius Firmianus Lactantius (about 250 - 325) made in the 5th century. To these the Dialogs of Gregory the Great and shorter theological texts by Augustine, Isidore of Seville and additional (mostly unknown) authors were added in the 8th century, probably in St. Gall.
