Script Commentary

Script is early Caroline minuscule, written by eight scribes (Gyslarius, Aldo, Fredegaudus, Nauto, Theogrimnus, Theodegrimus, Ansoaldus, and Landemarus) exhibiting different stages of development. Turonian half-uncial occurs at the beginning of one book. Crowding and spreading at the ends of quires show that the archetype was distributed by quires to the several scribes.
