Script Commentary

Script is an early minuscule still retaining some pre-Caroline features: a has two forms; likewise g, noteworthy is the one with a thin oval bow; h leans to the left; r in ligature goes well below the line; the first stroke of z is c-shaped and stands on the base-line; N and R occur within the minuscule. The manuscript was thoroughly revised in the ninth century when many pages were partially or wholly rewritten.
