Script Commentary

Script is early Caroline minuscule by several hands, some seen also in MS 41 (CLA 8.1147): a is more frequent than open a; Insular occurs here and there; N occasionally within the minuscule. The erased name 'hildoard' (?) stands in the lower margin of fol. 84v (end of a quire), possibly the name of one of the scribes. A note saec. IX in. concerning the right order of quires is seen on fol. 92v : 'hic deest una quatterna et est disiuncta require in antea supra tertiam et sic inuenies.' A metrical prayer in uncial saec. IX is entered on fol. 208v.
