The Colophons of Codex Amiatinus.

Gameson, Richard (2019) 'The Colophons of Codex Amiatinus.', in Anglo-Saxon micro-texts. , pp. 89-116. Buchreihe der Anglia / Anglia book series. (67).


A few of the many rubrics in Codex Amiatinus include colophonic phrases. This article investigates their nature (generally formulaic and conventional) and the various factors that may lie behind their inclusion, highlighting the possible contribution of individual scribes. Their implications for Wearmouth-Jarrow’s scribal culture are considered.
