Eugippius, Abbas (455-533)
A copy of the excerpts of Eugippius († after 533) from the works of Augustine, very popular during the middle ages, produced in the Cloister of St. Gall around the middle of the 9th century. In the first half of the 11th century this text was carefully studied by the monk Ekkehart IV, who added numerous remarks and commentaries to it. On the inner side of the back cover are sketches by Ekkehart IV of a carafe-shaped drinking vessel and three accompanying short verses about his fellow monk Crimalt or Crimolt, who was fond of a drink.
