Script Commentary

Written by three hands: the main part in Continental minuscule, the top nine lines of fol. 118v in pointed Anglo-Saxon minuscule, and the bottom four lines in a larger Anglo-Saxon minuscule; the Continental minuscule which obviously is influenced by Insular script strongly recalls the eN-type: open a is frequent; uncial N occurs; o often has a tiny upper stem; both branches of y incline to the right, an Insular feature; numerous ligatures, chiefly of e and r. Probationes pennae by a later hand.
