Script Commentary

Script is roundish minuscule of the Alemannic type: open a is more frequent than a; z is tall; the nt-ligature occurs often in mid-word; ti ligature is used for hard and soft ti; noteworthy is the ligature ra with the shoulder of r descending to form the right-hand stroke of a. Long entries saec. XII–XIII are seen on p. 1, 2, 136–138, 251–254.
