Script Commentary

Script, by several scribes, is early Caroline minuscule of a type seen in Salzburg manuscripts, such as Munich CLM 5508 (CLA 9.1247), Vienna Lat. 1007 (CLA 10.1497), etc.: both Caroline a and open a are used; uncial occurs frequently; ligatures include ti in the Insular form. Minor corrections here and there by a tenth-century hand.


☛CLA date (VIII–IX) changed to follow Bischoff, Südostdeutschen Schreibschulen 2 no. 10.
