Script Commentary

Script is a good, calligraphic uncial, but not of the very oldest type: the bow of uncial A is angular and made with fine strokes; the loop of uncial E is closed; the second bow of uncial M is higher and somewhat humped; the cross-stroke of T is rather long and sinuous. Numerous corrections and marginalia occur passim and are by an Irish reader or by one influenced by Irish script. The name 'bonipertus' is entered in the upper margin of fol. 51 by a ninth-century hand.
