Script Commentary

Script, by one hand, is a rude and squatty pre-Caroline minuscule with letters inclined to the right: g is 3-shaped; the shoulder of r is long and sinuous; ligatures with e are numerous; a line inserted in the lower margin of fol. 15, apparently by the original scribe, shows cursive features. Small corrections passim; that on fol. 92 may be Insular saec. IX. A certain Adalleoz notes twice (foll. 42, 158) that he read this book through during Lent.
