Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is Caroline minuscule of the same type as that seen in the three Cologne Augustine volumes written by nuns (CLA 8.1152; see also cal 6, p. x.xii). Another type of minuscule is seen on parts of foll. 285v and 395v. The uncial used for the headings has the typical forms of , M, and N; 𐌾 has an s-like tail. The name 'hathuui///', partly erased, is in tenth-century minuscule on fol. 150. The grey leather jacket may be the original binding of the manuscript.
