Script Commentary

Script is a typical Merovingian minuscule by two different hands: the characteristic letter is l with its shaft breaking near the foot; y is v-shaped and dotted, and stands on the line; ligatures numerous; ti ligature is used for hard ti. The entry ‘ora pro agamberto' stands on fol. 87v.
