|Contents||Explanationes in Donatum (I).|
Written in an expert cursive charter-hand, bearing some resemblance to the cursive script of North Italy: one form of the ri ligature could be mistaken for n; the form of uncial E shaped like a cursive Greek theta is noteworthy; it is also found in the 'Benedictio Cerei' in cursive preceding the Augustinus de Baptismo in uncial in the famous Escorial MS.
