Abstract [en]

The article examines in detail the palaeographic and orthographic features of the fourteenth­century Icelandic manuscript fragment AM 231 VII fol., which contains parts of Barlaams saga ok Josaphats. The purpose is to establish a reliable basis for a future comparison between this fragment and DG 11, also known as the Uppsala Edda, which is believed to have been written by the same scribe. In addition a diplomatic edition of the fragment is presented. In the palaeographic investigation the manuscript’s graphs have been analysed into graph­types and graph­type variants, on the basis of which the script of AM 231 VII fol. has been classified as Northern Textualis, although with some cursive features. In the orthographic investigation the graph­types established have been correlated with the Old Norse phonemic system in order to identify the orthographic distinctions made in AM 231 VII fol. The results of this investigation differ in part from previous conclusions about the manuscript’s older and younger traits, and about word forms ascribable to Norwegian influence. On the basis of the study AM 231 VII fol. has been dated to the beginning of the 14th century.
