Fredegar Manuscript now Catalogued

Full catalogue information (i.e. metadata) is now available for Vienna, Ö.N.B. Cod. Lat. 482, a Reichenau (saec. VIII-IX) manuscript of the famous 'Chronicle of Fredegar'.  It contains only the first 3 books (of 4) of this work.

The manuscript also contains a short fragment of Hilarianus' De Cursu Temporum on ff. 59v-61r, though the manuscript used to contain the whole text before the loss of two quires between current quires VIII and IX.

Finally, the final written folio (f. 87) contains part of an Old High German glossary known as the 'Samanunga'.
