Script Commentary

Script is a rather rapid pre-Caroline minuscule of French type, with numerous ligatures: c is often tall as in Merovingian charter-hand; N is frequent; i after r regularly has the long form as in Merovingian charters. The scribe of the crowded cursive minuscule seen on the lower half of foll. 40v, 41, and 41v also wrote foll. 138v–140 (see CLA **604d).
