Script Commentary

Script is pre-Caroline minuscule by several hands, some crude, some neat and orderly: the main hand uses many cursive features; noteworthy is the form o branching at the top (foll. 10 ff.); the shoulder of r curves upward; i-longa occurs initially and often after r and źž‡; N with the second upright comma-shaped is seen in the uncial headings and when capital. The hand on foll. 73vā€“75 recalls one of the hands of Einsiedeln 199 (638) (CLA 7.875). Liturgical entries with neumes saec. X are seen on foll. 75ā€“75v.
