Beda, Venerabilis (672-735)
Copy of the Pauline Epistles with the Glossa ordinaria: Epistle to the Romans (pp. 3–44), First Epistle to the Corinthians (pp. 44–78), Second Epistle to the Corinthians (pp. 78–106), Epistle to the Galatians (pp. 106–121), Epistle to the Ephesians (pp. 121–136), Epistle to the Philippians (pp. 136–146), Epistle to the Colossians (pp. 146–156), First Epistle to the Thessalonians (pp. 156–164), Second Epistle to Timothy (pp. 165–172), Epistle to Titus (pp. 172–177), Epistle to Philemon (pp. 177–179), Epistle to the Hebrews (pp. 179–214). The Second Epistle to the Thessalonians and the First Epistle to Timothy are missing (loss of a quire).The beginning of the Epistle to the Romans (Rm 1, 1–20) appears on pp. 1-2 already, also with the Glossa ordinaria. The decoration consists of initials with scroll ornamentation in the same ink as the text on pp. 3, 44, 106, 146, 172, 177 and 179. On the last leaf (p. 215-216), presumably formerly a pastedown, there is the sequence De sancto Nicolao by Adam of Saint Victor with diastematic neume notation on staff lines incised with a stylus. This notation, not customary in St. Gall, argues against the manuscript's having been produced at the St. Gall monastery.
