Excerpt from The Dialogues of Gregory the Great: Translated Into Anglo-Norman French by Angier
Angier, after having made the first draught of his translation of the dialogues, made a clean copy of the same which he signed and dated. Eighteen months later he added to the manus... cript the translation of the Life of Gregory which he also dated in a manner precise. My hypothesis is, says Meyer, that we have this mise en net executed by Angier himself. The chirography is of the first half of the thirteenth century. The science of paleography does not enable us to determine a more definite date. The colored initials are alternately green and red (125 Elsewhere they are blue and red. It is known that green capitals are hardly found in the manuscripts after the first years of the thirteenth century If the manuscript of the Sorbonne was a copy of the autograph of Angier, we should expect the two works to follow each other without interval. But this does not occur. The Dialogues end in the second column of leaf 151, which is next to the last leaf of a cahier.
