Script Commentary

Script is the typical roundish Alemannic minuscule: open a predominates; ligatures of nt occur even mid-word; the ti ligature is used for soft ti. The scribe’s name which stood in his subscription on p. 336 was ruthlessly erased and is now undecipherable. Neumes were added on p. 282, 290. The original script on p. 290b is erased and was re-written in the fifteenth century. The bifolium p. 147/148161/162 has been repaired with a scrap of an eighth-century manuscript of Gregory's Dialogues in Merovingian script, other fragments of which are collected in St Gall MS 214 (see CLA 7.924).
