Manuscript Summary
Composite manuscript consisting of two parts, which were joined in the 14th century at the latest, as confirmed by the dating of the binding. The first part (1-85) contains Alcuin’s commentary on Genesis and is dated to the second third of the 9th century; some researchers localize this manuscript in western Germany, others in Raetia. The second part (87-191)contains the Partitiones by the grammarian Priscian and was written in the second half of the 10th century in Einsiedeln. A letter, sent by Heinrich II. von Güttingen, Abbot of Einsiedeln (1280 to 1299), to the vice-chaplain of the parish church of St. Peter and Paul on the island Ufenau, is copied onto the last page.
