Sedulius Scottus, Explanationes in praefationes ad evangelia

The oldest manuscript of Sedulius Scottus' commentaries on the common introductions to the Gospels. In the 16th century, the manuscript apparently came from Fulda to Basel, a center for printing. This brief work, which has survived in only a handful of codices, is still awaiting a critical edition. (stb)

Victorius Aquitanius cum additamentis . Carmen de ponderibus et mensuris

The 'twin codex' of Cod. 250 from the Burgerbibliothek of Bern was produced in Fulda. It remains unclear when and how this mathematical manuscript reached Bern. It seems to have left Fulda in the 10th century at the latest, as suggested by the hands of the added texts. (stb)

Sulpicius Severus, Epistula ad Bassulam (exc.) · Gregorius Turonensis, Historiae (exc.) · Gregorius Turonensis, De virtutibus s. Martini (exc.) · Sedulius, Carmen paschale

This manuscript with excerpts from a ‘Martinellus’ and from Sedulius' Carmen Paschale was produced around the turn from the 8th to the 9th century in the German-Anglo-Saxon area; in the 16th century it apparently came from Fulda to Basel, a center for printing. The manuscript originally included a Vita s. Eulaliae virginis, which has been lost. Remarkable are the scanning aids at the beginning of the Carmen Paschale. (stb)

Lucanus: De bello civili; Dracontius: Orestes; Hyginus: De astronomia; Figurae Graecorum

This manuscript was created in Fleury; the first page is magnificently decorated with two large interlace initials, which represent a special type of insular decorative art. In addition to smaller pieces, this composite manuscript contains the epic poem De bello civili (Parsalia) by Lucan (middle of the 1st century) as well as a version of the Orestes myth by the African poet Dracontius (5th century). For the latter, this codex constitutes by far the oldest textual witness. The beginning of Lucan's text by is provided with an abundance of scholia; because of Cod. 370, which contains only scholia, they are known as the Commenta Bernensia. (mit)

Commenta Bernensia in Lucanum; Adnotationes super Lucanum

This manuscript, which was probably produced in Reims, consists of two parts that contain only the scholia on Lucan, but not the actual text. The first part (up to f. 125v) contains the scholia known as the Commenta Bernensia, which are preserved only in this codex. The text is interspersed with 21 simple schemata in color, geographic representations as well as plans of cities and of battles. The second, unfortunately incomplete part contains a collection of non-illustrated glosses (Adnotationes) for books 1 to 4 as well as 9 and 10 (beginning). As becomes clear from the content, the original plan of merging the Commenta and the Adnotationes into a single text was apparently abandoned in the middle of the first book of the Commenta, and the Adnotationes were copied separately in the last third of the manuscript (from f. 125v).

Galenus, De simplicium medicamentorum facultatibus

This is a 16th century paper manuscript with a watermark. The medical text contains the eleven books of Galen’s De simplicium medicamentorum [temperamentis ac] facultatibus. The narrow and «pointue» (pointed) script is reminiscent of that of Demetrius Moschus, a Greek humanist who was active in Venice and Ferrara (middle of the 15th century – after 1519). This copy is incomplete, as attested by several blank spaces intended to hold illuminated initials. The codex was purchased by Aleandre Petau in 1655. It was passed on to the pastor and theologian Ami Lullin and, after his death, it was bequeathed to the Bibliothèque de Genève. (man)
