Connection with Brittany

This MS was included by Fleuriot in his list of Breton Gospel-books (Fleuriot 1983: 104). While the decoration of Gospel-initials (fols 1r, 80r, 85r) does seem to be heavily influenced by insular models (cf. especially Paris, BnF, Lat. 264; these two Gospel-books are described as 'related' in EBGB 13, n. 1), the question of the origin of this codex should nevertheless be re-examined from the textual and palaeographical points of view.
