Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is a pre-Caroline minuscule of a German type in vogue in the Lake Constance region and also encountered in some Freising manuscripts (CLM 6303, 6305, and 6309, CLA 9.1268, 1269, 1272): a has two forms, the open a predominating; both d and uncial are used; ligatures are numerous and include fi and nt even in mid-word. A few ninth-century corrections. The last page, originally left blank, has ninth-century entries.
