Script Commentary

Script is a rather awkward uncial with i-longa initially and semi-vocally; and tall ascenders of uncial H, L, and T in the NT ligature; U is frequently a mere suprascript stroke after q; Y is undotted; FF and LL run together. Interlinear glosses in a pre-Caroline minuscule, some showing Anglo-Saxon symptoms, with p᷎ for per (fol. 40v) and such spellings as ‘assia' for Asia . Early readers also added variant readings and illustrations. The probationes pennae saec. VIII on fol. 66 read '+Framnoaldus' (top margin) and ‘Leodu' (lower margin).
