Script Commentary

Script is pre-Caroline minuscule, of Burgundian type in part, by several hands working simultaneously: a and d have two forms; is seen on foll. 63 ff.; the shaft of h leans to the left; dotted y with a long tail occurs in the first part; the triangular form of uncial A with the sinuous middle stroke resting on the base-line occurs, e.g. on fol. 51v. Archbishop Leidrad collated the first part of the manuscript, cf. foll. 17v, 18, 22v, etc., and CLA 4.417.
