Script Commentary

Script, by more than one hand, is a broad roundish and comely early Caroline minuscule of South-east German type, recalling Vienna MS Lat. Ser. n. 2066 (CLA 10.**1318) from Mondsee: open a is more common than a; the two horizontals of z are semicircular, with the first open at the top and the second at the bottom, a form frequently seen in German manuscripts; ligatures include nꞇ even in mid-word and ti ligature for hard and soft ti.
