Script Commentary

Script is an early, not always elegant Caroline minuscule by more than one hand: the half-uncial form of a occurs besides the two normal forms. Cursive is used for one or more lines at the end of foll. 33, 104v, 150 and for seven on fol. 154. The entry after the colophon is in a script recalling the Martyrology Weissenb. 81 (CLA 9.1393). A fragment of the Vita S Julianae is entered on fol. 1r–v, presumably by a Weissenburg scribe saec. IX. Probationes pennae saec. IX and a crude drawing in pen and ink on fol. 154 r–v.
