C. Lukas Bohny: Salust in Zurich: On two manuscripts in the Zentralbibiothek,Car. C. 143a and R. 86.
This paper discusses two manuscripts of the Sallust monographs Bellum Catilinae,and Bellum Iugurthinum, kept at the Zentralbibliothek in Zurich, and written in the 11th or 12th century: Car. C 143a, which belonged to the collegiate church of Felix and Regula in Zurich, or rather to its school, the Carolinum, and Rh. 86 from Rheinau Abbey. The Zurich manuscript contains evidence for its possible origin in St Gall or its surroundings. A posterior addition suggests that it belonged to Rheinau before coming to Zurich. There are no indications of the origin of the Rheinaucodex. Both manuscripts are abundantly glossed and contain mostly the same accessus to the Bellum Catilinae.
