Script Commentary

Script is a somewhat compressed half-uncial with letters inclined to the left: d has two forms; g has a squashed look; i-longa is used initially; ascenders and descenders are rather long, a feature of Visigothic calligraphy; the ligatures nt and rt with very tall T occur at line-end. A contemporary hand has added passim in the margin in sloping uncial the word 'replicatio' and other observations. Another uncial addition occurs in the Capitula on fol. 39v. Annotations in cipher appear on foll. 21, 21v, 22 of the Autun manuscript. Liturgical matter in an early Visigothic cursive is entered on foll. 16, 26v–27, 32v–33 in space originally left blank; other liturgical entries in Visigothic minuscule saec. VIII on foll. 32v–33 (after the earlier script had been washed off), 33v, 39, 39v.
