Script Commentary

Script is mainly Anglo-Saxon minuscule under Continental influence with a considerable admixture of majuscule of the compressed type; one hand strongly recalls the script of CLM 14080 (CLA 9.1289a); three Continental hands collaborated, writing some short passages; the one seen on fol. 113, lines 13 ff. seems identifiable with the main hand of CLM 14537 (CLA 9.1304); another hand seen on fol. 56r–v shows Insular influence and makes final t in a manner recalling Visigothic penmanship. Two notes on foll. 1 and 181 by an eleventh-century hand recall the marginal entries of Marianus of Regensburg (cf. Chroust, Mon. Pal., 1.2, Lief. 10.1).
