Decoration

Luxeuil Minuscule

The scribe has decorated the large initial 'B' with dots and zoomorphic figures. The scribe has also used a hierarchy of scripts that decrease in size until the main body of the text in the Luxeuil script.

Irish Minuscule

Large initials are stylized and decorated with clusters of dots. The text after these large initials decreases in size in a gradual diminuendo. Some words are also rubricated.
