Script Commentary

Script is a somewhat crude Irish minuscule not of the pure type; strokes are ill-joined and in general letters incline to the left; shafts of tall letters are club-shaped and lack the typical Insular finial; a letter at the beginning of a sentence occasionally encloses the letter following. The script seen on fol. 54 recto and verso is by the scribe of foll. 47 ff. (see CLA 3.337).
