Script Commentary

Script is a somewhat compressed yet roundish Caroline minuscule of Salzburg type, closely akin to the script of CLA 10.1475 and 1476: a and d have two forms; the ꞇi ligature occurs in the Insular form. Added patristic excerpts on foll. 46v–57 are by Salzburg scribes saec. IX in.; excerpts from St Augustine on foll. 2, 57–59 probably by the scholasticus Baldo. The script of a late eighth century corrector using grey ink (foll. 17, 36, etc.) distinctly recalls the hand of Meginfrit seen in Bamberg MS Class. 3 (CLA 8.1027a).
