Script Commentary

Script is excellent early Caroline minuscule with long ascenders and descenders—it is to be compared with Munich, Bayerische Staatsbibliothek Clm 13038 from St Emmeram, Regensburg (CLA 9.1288) (Gamber’s assertion that the script is related to the second hand of the Mondsee Psalter in Montpellier, CLA 6.795, cannot be accepted): both ‘oc’ a and a, d and are used; among the ligatures occur ent, eri, nt, or, ri, ro.
