Script Commentary

Script is a rather gauche compressed mixed Anglo-Saxon majuscule: a is almost regularly minuscule; d has two forms; n and R are the rule; s is more frequent than . An Anglo-Saxon minuscule hand wrote over the erased fol. 23v. German glosses scratched in with a stylus in Insular minuscule occur passim. Our volume is probably the 'Sinonima sancti Esidori' mentioned in the oldest Fulda catalogue (see CLA 7.842).
