Script Commentary

Script is early Caroline minuscule by several hands: one in MS 24 recalls Weissenb. 81 (CLA 9.1393); some hands use N and R in the minuscule, some open a and ; s is markedly long in the st ligature; other ligatures include nt even in mid-word and ti ligature for soft ti; ligatures with suprascript a and other cursive features in Adallandus's part. Some opening words in artificial half-uncial. Some entries in cipher (partly borrowed from Notae Tironianae) in MS 14: 'ada' (fol. 23v), 'adallandus', another word, and 'ada' (fol. 40v). Corrections by several hands: one showing Anglo-Saxon influence is seen also in Gotha Mbr. I. 85 (CLA 8.1209). The probatio pennae 'omnium inimicorum suorum dominabitur' saec. IX–X in MS 14 (fol. 246v).
