Script Commentary

Script is early Caroline minuscule reminiscent of certain manuscripts of the Salzburg type (Vienna Lat. 313* and 366, CLA 10.1475 and 1476 and others), though different in admitting uncial N and R and the ligatures ra and re: ascenders slightly wedge-shaped; descenders in part longish. Corrected in the ninth century.
