Script Commentary

Script is early minuscule by several hands, some clearly Alemannic; the hand on p. 3 ff. is very similar to the hand of St Gall MS 133, pp. 209–15 (see CLA 7.911): both open a and a are used; g is often top-heavy; the shaft of h occasionally bends to the left; the top of is often looped to the left; o occasionally has a horn-like hair-line at the top, as in Merovingian cursive; the nt ligature occurs even in mid-word; ti ligature stands for hard and soft ti.
