Script Commentary

Script, by several hands, is Anglo-Saxon minuscule, in part pointed and probably Northumbrian: d is normally open; in the stiff and angular script on foll. 63 ff. r is short and u often cup-shaped and suprascript; ligatures include di, li, lis, ti. The biblical lemmata are partly in larger minuscule or in compressed majuscule with a tendency to diminish gradually in size [i.e. dimenuendo].
