Script Commentary

Written by several scribes, some showing boldness and mastery of stroke. The titles use fancy capitals characteristic of the ‘Luxeuil’ type. Noteworthy are letters O and M. Fol. 136v contains a prayer in Merovingian cursive saec. VIII. At the ends of formulae the words ‘per dominum nostrum’, etc. are frequently written in Luxeuil minuscule. Notae Tironianae occur.
