Script Commentary

Script is a characteristic late pre-Caroline minuscule with a tendency to angularity: the shoulder of r turns upward; ascenders and descenders are rather long. The numeral VI on p. 366 has the old ligature form. The added heading on p. 352 in ninth-century Rustic capitals is decidedly French.
