Script Commentary

Script is an angular Luxeuil type, a forerunner of the more angular a-z script. The lemmata from Ezechiel are in typical Luxeuil half-uncial, seen also in combination with Luxeuil minuscule in Paris Lat. 17655, fol. 3 (CLA 5.671), and to be compared with the half-uncial group described under Paris Lat. 2110 (CLA 5.541). Some running titles in a script resembling the Maurdramnus type were added towards the end of the eighth century.
