|Connection with Brittany|
A Breton origin for this collection of canons is suggested in EBGB 13 (n. 1), and this hypothesis is repeated in PMSB 299 (where this MS is erroneously described as a Gospel-book of 'origine bretonne probable'). In fact, there does not seem any evidence pointing to a Breton origin, judging from CLA, vol. 10, §1572a, and Kat. §1442a.
Fols 1–30 and 54–197, containing canon laws, were probably written in a Northern Frankish scriptorium (Rheims?) during the second half of the eighth century. Fols 31–53, also containing mainly Church canons, are written in an early form of Caroline minuscule and may have been produced in a Northern Frankish centre between the late eighth and early ninth century (cf. CLA, vol. 10, §1572b).
