Script Commentary

Script is Anglo-Saxon minuscule: descenders are fairly long; the shaft of z sweeps boldly below the line. Lemmata are in somewhat compressed Anglo-Saxon majuscule touched up with daubs of red and yellow. Some verses in Insular script saec. VIII–IX on fol. 61v might be in the hand of Gundheri (cf. M. p. th. f. 64, CLA 9.1418).
