Script Irish Minuscule

Origin and Provenance

Written in Ireland, probably at Bangor or possibly in Leinster, by the scribe Diarmait. The fifteenth-century Bobbio ex-libris and the number 89 stand on fol. 2. Reached the Ambrosiana in 1606. The large number of marginal and interlinear glosses in the vernacular are of primary importance for the study of Old-Irish.

Script Commentary

Script is a firm and well developed Irish minuscule recalling Turin F. IV. 1 and to some extent the Cambridge St Paul (CLA 2.133): e in ligature occasionally has the lower bow reversed; i at the beginning of a word is usually long; the tio ligature occurs; Greek Ψ is frequently used for ps. Numerous marginalia and interlinear entries in small contemporary minuscule. The name 'Adelgisus' in Caroline minuscule saec. IX occurs on p. 162.
