Script Commentary

Script, by several scribes, is early Caroline minuscule of Lorsch type with distinctly club-shaped or looped ascenders: i-longa initially and medially used without regularity. It should be noted that the hand of foll. 2 ff. is similar to that of Wolfenb├╝ttel Weiss. 34, the Weissenburg MS of Bede's Historia Ecclesiastica-attributed to Metz in CLA 9.1385. A few lines in Alemannic type intrude on foll. 56, 73, and 79v. Corrected in the ninth century when also some of the original titles were replaced by more elegant Rustic capitals (on foll. 1v and 2v). Table of contents on fol. 127v by eleventh-century Lorsch hands.
