Script Commentary

Script of the inserted bifolium 48/49 (the scribe began on fol. 47v and ended on fol. 50, both over erasure) is an interesting specimen of imitation half-uncial by a scribe whose normal script is Maurdramn minuscule: G is uncial (as in the Leutchar-type seen on foll. 106 ff. of the main manuscript); script of foll. 96, 104, etc., is early Caroline minuscule by two scribes; the first distinctly resembles the main hand of Berlin Theol. Lat. Fol. 346 (CLA 8.1066): noteworthy is the form of with the left side of the top forming one continuous stroke with the stem.
