Script Commentary

Script is by several hands: the first writes a compressed Anglo-Saxon majuscule verging on minuscule, with S mostly majuscule and r regularly minuscule; some entire pages by this hand and final lines of most pages are more minuscule than majuscule; the other hands, of varying skill, write Anglo-Saxon minuscule of different types; one of these (foll. 33v ff.) may be compared with a hand seen in M. p. th. f. 13 (CLA 9.1404). Four theological fragments in Anglo-Saxon minuscule saec. IX¹ pasted to the covers go with two other fragments in the binding of M. p. th. f. 58.
