Manuscript Summary
This manuscript contains sermons by Augustine in uncial script, written by a single hand in the late 7th or early 8th century. The outer leaf of each quire (quinio) is parchment, while the remaining leaves are papyrus. These 53 leaves (8 quires) were unbound from a volume originally containing 30 quires (between 304 and 308 leaves). 63 additional leaves (8 quires) are held in Paris (Paris, BnF, lat. 11641); one additional leaf, originally between f. 26 and f. 27, constitutes St. Petersburg NLR, Lat.F.papyr. I.1; all other leaves have been lost. During the 9th century the volume was part of the library of Florus of Lyon, who added numerous marginalia to the manuscript in his own hand. (flu)

Für die Rekonstruktion der ursprünglichen Handschrift sollten die beiden Abschriften des 9. Jahrhunderts, die heute in Cambridge (University Library, Ms. Additional 3479) und Cambrai (Bibliothèque municipal, Ms. 567) aufbewahrt werden, berücksichtigt werden (siehe Beschreibungen von Isabelle Jeger und Franck Cinato; siehe auch Bischoff 1998, n° 801 et 840). Ob damit die fehlenden Lagen I-III und XII-XXIII und damit der ganze Inhalt der ursprünglichen Handschrift rekonstruiert werden kann, bleibt zu untersuchen.
