Abstract: This image is from a collection created by Etta Hanson and given to the College in 1954. All items are from Otto Ege's estate. The leaf was contained and mounted in a mat created by Otto Ege, as were all other leaves in this collection. There is a typed description at the bottom of the mat, which reads: "This century surpassed all other for the beautiful writing found in its MSS. The Carolingian bookhand here represented, is wellnigh perfect. One scribe of the period groans, “Scribere qui nescit, nullum putat esse laborem.” (“Whoso knows not how to write, thinks it is no trouble.”) It has been noted, however, that the more beautiful a manuscript becomes in its characters, the less accurate is its Latinity. Some writings of the Benedictine during this century, are almost unintelligible because of their barbarous Latin."
