Ansegisus, Fontanellensis (770-833)
Incomplete manuscript, written by several hands in Carolingian minuscule. It contains, among others, Books 2 and 3 of the Prognosticum futuri seculi (1r-25v) by Julian of Toledo (642-690), the Collectio Capitularium – documents of civil and ecclesiastical law - by Ansegisus of Fontenelle (32r-86v), the Capitularia Hludovici (86v-91r) and above all the Life of Louis the Pious by Theganus (91r-97v). Two contemporaneous interlinear glosses on p. 96v, corresponding to the account of the baptism of Harald of Denmark (Heriold, Harald Klak Halfdansson) and the bestowal of Frisia as fief to him in the year 826, suggest the manuscript's northern origin.
