Geschichte der Handschrift


This ms. designated "rho"*3 + Pb-5 by the editors (see incipits 2 and 3 below). This ms. is identified by H. Mayr-Harting as a copy made at Werden from a Berlin ms., which was written at Corbie and then went to Werden (personal communication from Mayr-Harting , forthcoming in publication; the suggestion that this ms. was produced at Werden was made to Mayr-Harting also by H. Hoffmann, in personal communication). For the exemplar, see Glanz alter Buchkunst: Mittelalterliche Handschriften der Staatsbibliothek Preussischer Kulturbesitz Berlin [Ausstellungskataloge 33, ed. by T. Brandis and P.J. Becker] (Wiesbaden 1988), pp. 26-27, Berlin, Ms. theol. lat. fol. 322, f. 1r.
