Sedulius Scottus’s Collectaneum Miscellaneum has preserved the contents table of a lost manuscript (here called Σ) transmitting a set of Augustinian works, for some very rare (c. Secundin. and c. Gaud.). This manuscript directly served Sedulius, who extracted numerous passages from a dozen different treatises for his Collectaneum Miscellaneum and his Collectaneum in Apostolum. The study of these excerpts, the confrontation of the text they witness with the data of the direct tradition of the works and the analysis of the content of another lost manuscript, the MS. † Chartres, BM, 104 (101), linked to the collection Σ, make it possible to trace the circulation of this collection in the ninth century, to establish relationships with traditions from Liégeois and Auxerrois regions and thus to propose new hypotheses on the biography of Sedulius Scottus and the places that he frequented.
