Script Uncial

Origin and Provenance

Written no doubt in North Italy, presumably in the Milan area. Rewritten ca. 700 with liturgical texts of Milan use, and again ca. 800 with a glossary in a North Italian or Swiss centre. These leaves and foll. 16 and 19 of the present manuscript were removed from the same St Gall MS 908. They probably reached Zürich during the Toggenburg War (1712).

Script Commentary

Script is excellent uncial of the oldest type: the bow of A is a thin oval; the tail of 𐌾 and the bow of q are small; the second upright of N is short; the stem of R descends below the line; Z is curiously small and compressed; ligatures occur at line-end.
