Script Commentary

Script is pre-Caroline and early Caroline minuscule by eight different hands; the scribe of fol. 71 lines 16 ff. uses Insular ; the hand of foll. 121v ff. and 130 ff. recalls the Alemannic style; the script of fol. 130 lines 1–19 is closely akin to that of CLM 6393, foll. 138 ff. and recalls the hand of Bishop Leidrad of Lyon who came from Freising (cf. CLA 4.417 and 6.770). Numerous corrections saec. IX. The liturgical introductory phrase 'In illo tempore' occurring here and there is a tenth-century addition.
