Script Commentary

Script is pre-Caroline minuscule, by several hands: some scribes use either a or open a only, others use both forms; two forms of uncial G occur besides the minuscule on foll. 24 ff.; i-longa is used even in mid-word by one hand; the low-looped is used by one hand; the ti ligature occurs for hard ti; the transected form of capital Q recalls that found in Luxeuil manuscripts (cf. CLA 5.548). An Anglo-Saxon hand saec. IX entered a lesson on fol. 59v. The manuscript still has its very old pigskin cover with the title on the back: 'EXPOSITIO SUPER IOB' (saec. X or XI).
