Script Commentary

Script is a roundish minuscule of Alemannic type recalling the hand of the St Gall scribe Waldo: open a is more frequent than a; a in ligature with t occurs suprascript at line-end; other ligatures used are nt (often in mid-word), te, tr, tu, ti (for hard and soft ti). The lost beginning of this treatise was supplied on p. 164–170 by ninth-century St Gall hands; at the bottom of p. 170 stands the note 'uerte folium et sic hoc sequenti coniunge'.


☛Written by Abbot Waldo (John 1995).
