|Connection with Brittany|
Bischoff (Kat. §5162) confidently attributes this Gospel-book to Brittany, in agreement with Alexander (EBGB 15, n. 6) and Deuffic (PMSB 314–15; ILLB In24). There is no doubt that the decoration (e.g. the large decorated initial Li of Matthew's Gospel on fol. 4r, or the large decorated initial I of Mark's Gospel on fol. 63r) depends largely on insular models, and some insular abbreviations do occur too (Lemoine 2008: 188). However, pending a detailed and up-to-date palaeographical, art-historic and textual analysis, a Breton origin of this MS cannot fully be confirmed at present (in particular, an origin in a Western Frankish scriptorium, perhaps close to Brittany, cannot be ruled out). The Nevers provenance, on the other hand, is confirmed by an entry on fol. 55v, mentioning Herueus, bishop of Nevers from 1099 to 1109.
