Script Commentary

Script is mainly pointed Anglo-Saxon minuscule in Peregrinus' hand also seen in CLM 6297, 6299, and 6433 (CLA 9.1263, 1265, 1283); but ordinary Freising hands are seen on foll. 46, 52, and 178 which recall the script of CLM 6279, 6282, etc. (q.v.). The Peregrinus subscription on fol. 186v is in red uncial into which an Anglo-Saxon has slipped; elsewhere, as in the opening lines of homilies, his uncial is pure and has a Northumbrian flavour. The name 'Ellanthrud' is seen in the lower margin of fol. 42v.
