Script Commentary

Script, by two hands, is an early calligraphic minuscule of the Salzburg type, closely akin to the script of Munich CLM 5508 (CLA 9.1247): a normally has the Caroline form of the letter, but open a also occurs; ascenders are club or wedge-shaped; noteworthy is the or ligature with the sweeping end-stroke characteristic of this type.
