Script Commentary

Script, by several scribes, is a pre-Caroline roundish minuscule of the Alemannic type: both open a and a are used; z is tall; the nt-ligature is used in mid-word; ti ligature for hard ti. The entries 'credita et uisa' and similar notes are in smaller and more cursive characters.
