Script Early Caroline Minuscule
Date VIII² (751 - 800)
Origin and Provenance

Written at Regensburg, apparently by the scribe of the main part of Munich CLM 14537 (CLA 9.1304), possibly as a continuation to the Anglo-Saxon Regensburg manuscript of Isaiah and Jeremiah (now Munich CLM 14080; CLA 9.1289a) with which our manuscript agrees almost exactly in size and number of lines. The manuscript received its present binding in the Imperial Library in 1720.

Script Commentary

Script is an upright early Caroline minuscule of the same type and apparently by the same hand as the main part of Munich CLM 14537: a has only the Caroline form; d has two forms; z goes well below the line; ascenders and descenders are long; few ligatures used. A contemporary hand betraying Insular influence repeated the word propheta on fol. 59.
