Script Commentary

Script, by more than one hand, is compressed, somewhat florid Anglo-Saxon majuscule verging on minuscule: majuscule a predominates; d, n, and r are mostly minuscule; both forms of s are common; l often goes below the following letter; u is often suprascript and cup-shaped; both branches of y curve to the right. The entry 'alleluia' on fol. 52v in Merovingian cursive seems to be by an Anglo-Saxon scribe.
