Script Commentary

Script, by several scribes who apparently worked on their respective quires simultaneously, is elegant Caroline minuscule of the St Amand-Salzburg type (cf. CLA 10.1463): v-shaped u occurs at line-end in the ending orv; ligatures include iꞇ (analogous to nꞇ), NT, nꞇ (rarely in mid-word), UR, US. Mixed artificial half-uncial is used for the first line of Lib 2; half-uncial a occasionally occurs in the minuscule.
