Script Commentary

Script is small uncial of a late type: Y occurs in the Insular form with both branches curving to the right; ascenders of h and L are long; LL run together here and there; minuscule letters occur occasionally at line-end; on fol. 11 several words are in Merovingian minuscule. Capital Q here and there has the form found occasionally in Luxeuil manuscripts with the upright tail dividing the lower half of the oval. Contemporary marginal corrections in pre-Caroline minuscule with some uncial elements; a correction in minuscule saec. VIII on fol. 161v.
