|Script||Irish Majuscule and Minuscule|
Two folios forming a bifolium, paginated 95-98 in a miscellany of fragments; present size ca. 230 X 220-230 mm. |
Written doubtless in Ireland. Was used at St. Gall for book-binding.
Spelling shows the usual Insular peculiarities: long i for ii ('misterÃ'), and confusion of s and ss ('missericordiae'). Initials in bold black, with white circles as finials and occasionally embedded in the black outline. Vellum is greasy and dark, disfigured by stains. Ink black. Script is Irish, in part stately majuscule, in part expert minuscule.
