Script is pointed Anglo-Saxon minuscule by several hands: the Continental open a is frequent on foll. 38v ff. Runic signs (especially for o) are curiously used at the beginning of some sentences (foll. 34v, 43, 43v, 51); 'AMEN' on fol. 50 is also partly in runes. Old High German glosses scratched in with a stylus in Insular minuscule occur passim. Our volume is probably the 'sancti Basillis' mentioned in the oldest Fulda catalogue (see CLA 7.842).
