Durham Cathedral MS A.2.17

Creation PlaceEngland, Northumbria, probably Lindisfarne


f.2-102: “Written probably in Northumbria, in a great centre of calligraphy in the direct line of Irish tradition, or else in Ireland itself. Its text is not Northumbrian but Irish. Was at Chester-le-Street in the tenth century.” CLA 1972 f.103-111: “Written in the Northumbrian monastery of Jarrow or Wearmouth, in the centre which produced the Codex Amiatinus, during the abbacy of Ceolfrid (690-716). Bound up with the part in Insular writing (i.e. f.2-102) at least as early as the tenth century, since the hand which wrote, on fol. 106, the entry about Bishop Aldred (†968) of Chester-le-Street and the priest Boge also occurs on fol.80 and 80*v.” CLA 1972
