Script
Despy (1953) argues that the script shows marked Anglo-Saxon or Insular influence but is also reminiscent of the fine script practised at Liége/Lüttich. Saenger (1993) mentions this manuscript as an example of ‘canonically separated script’, in which spacing is consistently applied between words, including conjunctions, monosyllables and particles, informed by a mode of grammatical analysis that distinguished itself from the old grammarians. He argues that this trend, which originated in irish and Anglo-Saxon scribal milieux, spread from England to the Low Countries and Lorraine.
