Script Commentary

Script, by several scribes, is late uncial; it is crude and mixed at the end of the manuscript: LL run together; minuscule letters and ligatures are inserted here and there, especially at line-ends; the end of a homily on p. 373 is in cursive minuscule, with the phrase 'per saecula saeculorum' in a Tironian monogram (see p. 138). Additions and corrections by contemporary hands in cursive minuscule (e.g. on p. 114, 209 f.) or in mixed script (p. 144 f.); also by later St Gall hands saec. IX and XIII. An entry in Luxeuil type of minuscule is seen on the lower left half of p. 421; other cursive types saec. VIII are seen to the right on the same page, which, being the last, is now worn and disfigured by the stamped St Gall ex-libris.
