Keywords:Fragments, University and Provincial Library of Tyrol, Manuscripts, Binder’s Waste, Provenance, Bookbinding
A hitherto unknown fragment of an early eleventh-century manuscript of the Vita sancti Columbae Adamnani has been discovered in the Secret State Archives, Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation in Berlin. Written in late-Carolingian minuscule (“schrägovaler Stil”), it contains chapters 37, 38, 40 and 41 of the second book of the Vita and reveals references to a different redaction of the text.
