Script Commentary

Script is minuscule of the Alemannic type, by numerous hands, some rather inexpert: open a occurs more often than a, the suprascript form occurs in ligature; uncial is frequent in parts of the manuscript; the nt-ligature occurs in mid-word and even when the t has an abbreviation-stroke; ti ligature is used for soft ti. The last quire (p. 265 ff.) containing dogmatic excerpts may, in the opinion of Dr Bruckner, be in the hand of Waldo, who wrote several St Gall charters.
