Script of the main hand is finely-penned, compressed Anglo-Saxon minuscule with long descenders, somehow lacking the typical Anglo-Saxon verve: the normal Anglo-Saxon minuscule a is often left open at the top; d is the rule with ꝺ occurring; the shafts of larger tall letters at the beginning of sentences have a tendency to buckle. It is to be noted that the script of two leaves from the beginning of Genesis is more akin to that of Berlin MS Theol. lat. fol. 366, another Anglo-Saxon manuscript from Werden (not included in CLA). Small corrections in Caroline minuscule.
