Script Commentary

Script is Insular majuscule of a rather compressed type verging on minuscule: d is mostly minuscule and n regularly so; majuscule R prevails; majuscule S occurs only after minuscule (puꞅsillum, diꞅcipuliꞅ suiꞅ, etc.); both open a and a are used. A correction on fol. 1v and liturgical lection-marks in the Passion are in tenth-century German minuscule.
