Also known as the Tours Pentateuch. A Latin illuminated manuscript of the Pentateuch (the first five books of the Old Testament). This manuscript is probably from the late 6th or early 7th centuries (with later additions), but a 5th century date has also been claimed. It was probably made in Roman North Africa, Spain, Syria or provincial Italy.
