Script Commentary

Script is an early, small-size minuscule, by different hands, some showing clear Alemannic features and cursive elements, e.g. half-uncial , -shaped o, with the horizontal looped to the left, and the ligatures nt (even in mid-word), ꞇa (with sickle-shaped a on top of ), and ti ligature (for hard and soft ti). The hand on p. 281 ff. is akin to that of Einsiedeln MS 369 (285), foll. 3–6, a fragment of a lectionary; the hand on p. 209–215 seems identical with the first hand of St Gall MS 259 (CLA 7.935).
