Script Commentary

Script is a pleasing Caroline minuscule of a distinct type by several hands: a has two forms, a and open a; the first upright of N leans to the right and descends well below the line. The uncial characters used for titles and colophons are in the distinctive type seen in Vatic. Regin. Lat. 316 + Paris Lat. 7193 (CLA 1.105 and 5, q.v.) and in MSS Lat. 12240 + 12241 and Lat. 18282 (CLA 5.639 and 5.674): the two bows of uncial M rise branch-like above the stem; the second upright of N leans to the left or both uprights incline towards each other.
