Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is round early Caroline minuscule with some pre-Caroline features: a, d, and have two forms; the stem of h tends to lean back; the lower left limb of x here and there has a curious knob (cf. CLA 9.1296, 1193); the form of z is noteworthy; the nt ligature occurs in mid-word; the form of gg on fol. 158 seems slavishly copied from an Insular exemplar. Ninth- and tenth-century corrections. A note on fol. 1 makes reference to the death of Abbot Baldwin of St Emmeram (†1324).
