Script Commentary

Script is a curious and awkward mixed minuscule recalling the medical MS Paris N.A. Lat. 203: three forms of a occur: the Caroline (which is usual), the open (as in Visigothic), and the closed (as in Beneventan); the top of T descends to the left in a closed bow or, as in Beneventan and Visigothic; the back of e has a little knob; the top-heavy g is characteristic. Additions in contemporary uncial and Caroline minuscule occur in quire U.
