Script Commentary

Script, by two hands, is Anglo-Saxon minuscule of a type characterized by long descenders: a and d have two forms; g has a pointed chest; l (in ll the second l) regularly extends far below the line; the last stroke of m is often prolonged; ligatures include tio. The uncial of the headings is not typically English: B is tall; L sometimes extends below the line; the top of T bends to the left. For the usual 'praefatio', our manuscript has 'cumlaudatio’ or 'contestatio'. For other details see under St Petersburg, CLA 11.**1372.
