Script Commentary

Script is pre-Caroline minuscule by several Alemannic scribes, among them Winithar (see CLA 7.893a) who probably held a leading position in the scriptorium since he rubricated the main part of the manuscript: open a is the rule, a the exception; i-longa is used initially; the tall form of Z occurs in various striking shapes; the ti ligature stands for hard ti. An almost contemporary hand refers to the year 781 as the 'presens tempus anni' (p. 1).
