Script Commentary

Script is an expert Irish minuscule: ligatures include no, ua. The manuscript is an early example of a book containing both text and commentary in parallel columns, a type which later becomes common. The glosses are mainly taken from Gregory's homilies. The probatio pennae 'anima mea' (saec. X) is seen on fol. 25 (cf. fol. 57 CLA 7.1012).
