Script Commentary

Script is early Caroline minuscule in different stages of perfection, by several hands working simultaneously on separate quires (evidenced by the blanks on foll. 106v, 260v, 268v); the hand on foll. 27 ff. distinctly recalls the Maurdramn type (cf. CLA 6, p. xxiv); those on foll. 133 ff. and 155 ff. use g without the final stroke to the right; open a and uncial are still used besides a and d. Contemporary and ninth-century marginalia by various hands. Notae Tironianae occur on fol. 261.
