Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is a somewhat roundish Alemannic minuscule of the type practised in the Lake Constance region: a has two forms; z is tall, with its horizontals curved; the characteristic nt ligature occurs in mid-word; ti ligature is used for hard and soft ti. The scribe Alboinus, who finishes the volume, writes on the last page a compressed minuscule with the horned o and drops into Carolingian charter-hand in his subscription.
