Script Commentary

Script is an Anglo-Saxon majuscule verging on minuscule, with , n, used regularly; a has both the minuscule and half-uncial form; the bow of q is disproportionately large and the descender hardly goes below the line; R occasionally is majuscule. The script changes into a crowded minuscule towards the end of fol. 35v, col. 1.
