Script Commentary

Script, by numerous scribes in part writing their respective quires simultaneously, is Caroline minuscule of the St Amand and Salzburg type (cf. CLA 10.1463): majuscule N is used frequently; typical is the v-shaped u with stroke above for um after the or ligature. Half-uncial of a distinct type reminiscent of Tours is used for some first lines and addresses: noteworthy is the horizontal serif on descenders; half-uncial occurs at the beginning of some sentences.
