Date of Origin s. XIV
Script, Hands

Northern littera textualis currens (s. XIV), with certain tendencies towards a littera cursiva. The execution of the letter 'a' alternates between a double compartment letter 'a' (textualis) and a single compartment letter 'a' (cursiva). However, the latter may be the result of small and rapid writing. Furthermore the descenders of the letters 'f' and the straight 's' have a tendency to extend below the baseline (cursiva). Finally, in some cases, ascenders of the letter 'l' have loops (cursiva).
