OFFERING AN INDESCRIBABLE RARITY: CAROLINGIAN MINUSCULE LOT. THE SATIRES OF PERSIUS!!! Persius pinge deid angues pueri sacer e locus extra meite. Just like in The Satires of Aulus Persius Flaccus Satire 1 Verse 113-115. 8 Pages and 4 half pages on 4 pieces of Parchment, brown and red ink. As you most likely know basically all medieval handwritings have religious content. But not so with this manuscript which is about The Satires of Persius (early important roman poet and satirist, 34-62). When I found this collection I was absolutely stunned, I’ve never got near a carolingian minuscule (which alone is extremely rare and probably is the most valuable of all medieval handwritings) with a content like that, whenever you see minuscule handwritings offered, they have religious content such as sermons and bible text. So finding this handwriting truly got me excited, and most likely will excite you too. The parchment is in a very unusual state of preservation , it’s scrolled and partly quite brittle (consider the age of about 1000 years, written in the very early high middle ages in probably northern Italy). It’s very thin and fragile too, you can easily look through it when you put it infront of a light source. Sadly a big portion of the text is not readable (look at the scan, a lot of it is quiet faded out), well with the right equipment you could read it all, but with your eyes only, you can’t read more than I guess 20% of the text. The carolingian minuscule of this piece itself is very beautiful, the letters are very thin and super precisely. There are a few parts were red ink got used too. A double side measures 35cm x 25cm (13.8” x 10.6”), the page size is 27cm x 18cm (10.6” x 7.1”). As you can tell it’s a very big manuscript, all put together the parchment covers an area of 56cm x 25cm (22” x 10.6”). So I just found another reference to another ancient Roman poet in the text.’ausim ut tenin inte comitte sulco ouidi in vi metamorph et nihile ad in inopino capt amore ausit.. Pay attention the the mentioning of”ouidi” and”metamorph” in the manuscript, which should stand for Ovid and his famous work the Metamorphoses. Sadly I’m in no position to find out more about the content of the manscript, so If you know something about it, it would be very generous of you to let me know so I can add it to the description. It’s the Book XVI of Priscianus’s’Institutiones grammaticae’ from the 6th century.
