Script of the text is an expert, but somewhat artificial, majuscule with more than the usual number of uncial elements, recalling in this respect the Canterbury Gospels (CLA 2.214): Uncial A, B, Ꝺ occur only here and there; N, R, S are the rule. Occasionally capital D is employed. The cross-bar of N is almost on the base-line and the two verticals have a tendency to lean towards each other. The ligature Æ is made up of the uncial A and the capital form of E. The minuscule used in the Capitula is somewhat angular: it has two forms of a and s; the shoulder of r descends to the line so that r and n could be confused in some cases. There are some corrections in stiff capitals.
