Script Commentary

Script by several hands, some recalling Maurdramn minuscule, some (especially on foll. 23v, 24, 25) of a more ordinary minuscule: open a (often resembling two successive c's) more frequent than a; the club-shaped ascenders and the forms of f and s recall Maurdamn style; N is frequent in the minuscule; numerous ligatures including nꞇ and or, even in mid-word. The texts from fol. 38v on, beginning with a poem by the Irishman Israel, seem to be tenth-century additions.
