Script Commentary

Script is a neat early minuscule with frequent ligatures, written presumably all by one hand (with the exception of a few lines on foll. 71 and 234) which seems South German: a is the rule, open a the exception; c is occasionally tall and broken; r goes below the line; the cedilla of e is long and shallow; ti ligature is used for hard and soft ti. Probationes pennae saec. IX and X, some with neumes, entered in grey ink (e.g. fol. 40v). A long note (saec. X) containing a German word is written upside down in the lower margin of fol. 223v.
