Script Commentary

Script is a pre-Caroline minuscule recalling Swiss types: open a is the rule, a the exception; both and d are found; h occasionally has a curved shaft; the top of loops to the left, as in Alemannic minuscule; ligatures include an, ro. A tenth-century hand entered prayers from a litany (fol. 79v).
