|Connection with Brittany|
Bischoff (Kat. I, 54) offers a laconic tentative attribution to either England or Brittany. At the end of Alcuin's De dialectica there is a curious 'Hisperic' short poem, inc. Omnipotens mesia soter adde legentibus auxin (edited from this MS by K. Strecker in MGH, Poetae Latini aevi Carolini, IV, 2 (Berlin, 1923), p. 1067, item XXVII; cf. also the poetic colophon at fol. 35v, presenting some striking alliterations: Hic pascitur gramine sub monte hoc petra uetusta / Ducite nunc petram pueri per prata iuuencam). In view of the Breton penchant for 'Hisperic' colophons and subscriptions (cf. e.g. Lemoine 1988 and 1995), the presence of this poem could perhaps support the ascription of this MS to Brittany. It is also notable that many instances of capital N have a rather 'insular' appearance. The interesting tract on the divisions of philosophia at fol. 51r is edited in Bischoff 1958: 13.
