Script Commentary

Script is a bold calligraphic Irish majuscule. Text mostly illegible, but the stately character of the script, and the traces of large decorative initials at short intervals (about three on a page) suggest collects; and, in fact, the decipherable text on foll. 56v to 63 is identical with the collect entitled 'Super hominem qui habet diabulum' found on fol. 30v of the Bangor Antiphonary (CLA 3.311), and only slightly different from the text of the 'Ordo baptismi' on fol. 47 of the Stowe Missal (CLA 2.268).
