Script Commentary

Script is calligraphic early Caroline minuscule of the Salzburg type akin to one hand of Munich CLM 16 128 (CLA 9.1313): a has two forms and also occurs suprascript in ligature with a following r at line-end. Slight corrections by a contemporary Insular hand are seen in the Kremsmünster leaves; they are probably by Cutbercht, the scribe of Vienna MS 1224 (CLA 10.1500). An antiphon with neumes saec. X on fol. 18v; a theological note saec. XI on fol. 26v.
