origin

What is origin?

origin meaning in Information Science terminology / glossary / dictionary is:

The place in which a manuscript was produced, seldom recorded unless mentioned in the colophon. Codicologists must determine origin by carefully studying the volume‘s contents, patronage, methods of production, and provenance. According to the British Library‘s Catalogue of Illuminated Manuscripts, the “use” of a liturgical manuscript is not necessarily evidence of its geographic origin, since eventually the major uses came to be widely distributed.
