Script Commentary

Script is a small, not very expert uncial of a late type with strokes often left unjoined. The contemporary half-uncial seen on fol. 147 is a distinctly French type. The trick of using capital DE in the Capitula written in uncial, and of introducing other letters in capitals in the otherwise uncial chapter-headings seems characteristic of scribes from the North of France.
