Script Commentary

Script is an elegant Caroline minuscule of the characteristic St Amand-Salzburg type (cf. CLA 10.1463): a is the usual, open a the occasional, form; v-shaped u is seen in the ending, orv at line-end. Half-uncial is used for some running titles, occasionally for 'amen', and on fol. 201 for the second line of a heading; half-uncial occurs at the beginning of sentences. Corrections by contemporary, ninth-, and eleventh-century hands. Numerous marginalia by a characteristic ninth-century scribe, probably Baldo of Salzburg .
