Script Commentary

Script, by more than one scribe, is broad roundish minuscule of the Alemannic type recalling the manuscript of Prophets ordered by Bishop John II of Constance (St Gall 44, CLA 7.899), but apparently of later date: open a is more frequent than a; the nt-ligature occurs in mid-word; ti ligature is used for hard ti; in the uncial headings the oblique of N sometimes extends beyond the second upright as in St Gall MS 44. Probationes pennae (saec. IX and X) on p. 328, 329, 330
