Script Commentary

Script is a bold uncial of a late type; the bow of A is pointed; B is somewhat larger than other letters and its lower bow protrudes to the right; G has a long curved tail; T often extends over the neighbouring letters; V-shaped U and the ligatures RV, RVNT, and US occur at line-ends. An interlinear correction in uncial saec. VIII is seen on fol. 2. The liturgical note 'in marterum', saec. VIII, seems to be in Insular majuscule with n and R (fol. 1). Rough fifteenth-century entries on fol. 1 refer to the monastery of Brogne.
