Manuscript Summary
This composite manuscript from the beginning of the 9th century, made up of two parts, was written at the Abbey of St. Gall and remains in its original Carolingian binding. The first part contains two works by the church father Augustine, the sermon De decem chordis and the text De disciplina christiana, as well as the work Adversus quinque haereses by Bishop Quodvultdeus of Carthage († 454). The second part contains, among various other short texts, a copy of the epitaph of Alcuin of York († 804), his book about virtues and vices De virtutibus et vitiis, dedicated to Duke Wido of Nantes, two sermons by Augustine as well as the so-called Dicta Bonifatii. Glosses were added here and there in both parts of the manuscript by the monk Ekkehart IV. during the first half of the 11th century; the codex shows signs of use through the 16th century. (smu)
