Script Commentary

Script is a careful uncial apparently by a hand accustomed to writing Gothic: A, N, O, and T follow the Greek canon; the form of the R with the stem extending below the line and the final stroke shortened is especially reminiscent of Gothic uncial. Smaller uncial is used for the prologues to the Epistles.
