Script Commentary

Script is a German type of minuscule with a number of ligatures. The curious Q with both arcs crossing at the base recalls the form seen in assured Freising manuscripts such as CLM 6299 (q.v.). The form of capital Q on foll. 31–32v suggests copying from an Insular exemplar. Some tenth-century corrections.
