Script Commentary

Script is a facile, pleasant pre-Caroline minuscule by several hands, recalling the script of Épinal 149 (68), Paris Nouv. Acq. Lat. 1575, and Wolfenbüttel Weissenb. 86 (CLA, 6.762, 5.682, and 9.1394): a has two forms, with open a predominating; g has the uncial form here and there; N frequently; suprascript cup-shaped u occurs at line-ends; ligatures include mi and ni, and ti ligature (here and there for both hard and soft ti). Corrections by an Insular hand ca. saec. VIII ex. on foll. 53v, 54, 55v; others in contemporary minuscule. Notae Tironianae for 'sententia' (in the margin) and 'amen'. The names 'uuirinhere' and 'fredegart' are entered in Anglo-Saxon minuscule saec. VII–IX.
