Script Commentary

Script is mainly vigorous Anglo-Saxon minuscule similar to the script of Paris Lat. 10399 (fol. 50) (CLA 5.596): open a is mostly majuscule but occasionally it has a form in which the second bow lacks its upper stroke; the lower part of ź½ swings to the right; r is short; both s and źž… are used; aźž‡ often have a common top stroke. The last few lines of each page are in pointed, almost cursive minuscule with open a.
