Script Commentary

Script is Caroline minuscule by numerous hands, some not very expert, some of the distinct St Amand-Salzburg type, elegant and calligraphic (cf. CLA 10.1463): a and open a are used; ligatures include do (once on fol. 12), NT and occasionally nꞇ. A familiar ninth-century Salzburg hand, probably Baldo's, made numerous corrections and extensive additions including the Gothic entries on fol. 20v. Notae Tironianae were added here and there in the margin.
