Manuscript Summary:
Manuscript Summary
This manuscript was probably created in Engelberg Abbey around 1175, as the type of writing and a note within the manuscript (c. 8va) seem to confirm. It contains additions and annotations from around 1400. The manuscript’s main text contains a copy of the so-called Reichenauer Kaiserchronik by Hermannus Augiensis (or Hermannus Contractus) and of the Excerpta of the continuation of the Chronicle by Bertholdus Augiensis. Among the notes added in the first half of the 14th century is one attesting to the transfer of the diocese from Windisch to Constance at the time of King Dagobert (29v). The last page contained notes about the history of Muri Abbey in the 14th and 15th century, which were probably removed in the 19th century. This manuscript is mentioned in the 1744 list of Muri manuscripts, but probably it was already held by the abbey around 1500. (ber)
