Script Commentary

Script is early Caroline minuscule, by about nine scribes, some of whom also worked on MS 51 (CLA 8.1150), another Hildebald volume; striking is the variety of forms used: a has three forms, d has two; majuscule N and R occur amid the minuscule; y, sometimes dotted, has two forms, one with both branches curving to the right; ligatures are numerous; ti ligature is used for hard ti. Some corrections in contemporary minuscule by several hands. Also some entries saec. X or XI.
