Eligius, Noviomensis (ca. 590-660)
The manuscript consists of two parts and contains various ascetic texts. The first part (1-24) was written by various unskilled hands in a Rhaetian-influenced minuscule which can be dated to the 8th/9th century and localized in a scriptorium in northern Italy or in Switzerland. The second part (25-140) is dated to the second third of the 9th century.

Early homiletic manuscript collection from the monastery of St. Gall, written on stiff, poorly smoothed, unevenly cut and damaged parchment, already previously used, overwritten in the first half of the 8th century with the sermons of Caesarius of Arles and the Synonyma of Isidore of Seville. Underlying script (Merovingian): a significant copy of the Old Testament Books of Wisdom, written in about 700 in southern France or Spain. This is among the oldest books preserved by the monastery of St. Gall.
