Script Early Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII ex (776 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Written doubtless in South-east Germany and copied presumably from an Insular exemplar. The script has some similarity to the script of CLM 6229 and the related Freising manuscripts (cf. CLA 9.1251). The leaves apparently were taken from the binding of CLM 1250, a fifteenth-century manuscript of unknown provenance containing legal tracts and the acts of the Council of Basel.

Script Commentary

Script is early Caroline minuscule: a has two forms; d has mostly the minuscule form; g is round and Ʒ-shaped; ligatures used include nt (with the base of the t joining the second shaft of n obliquely, not horizontally), ri, us. The form of capital Q is noteworthy.
