Script Commentary

Script is Freising minuscule by several hands of the type seen in CLM 6279, 6282, etc.; the easy-flowing hand on foll. 86ff. frequently uses uncial N, and occasionally and R, also subscript i and the nt ligature even in mid-word; a part of fol. 44 is in Anglo-Saxon minuscule by Peregrinus, scribe of CLM 6237, 6297, and 6433. The written area of fol. 146 is in the form of a shield. The formula 'deo gratias' transcribed in Greek letters is seen on fol. 157; Greek letters are also used at the end of the colophon on fol. 126v, the sense still unclear.
