Italian Leaf from a Pocket Bible ca. 1250
In this particular leaf the text has a leftward lean, most “d’s” are uncial, and the abbreviations are marked. This page went through a correction process in which the section in the red box on the right column is where the scribe missed text and it was later supplied by the same scribe or a proofreader. The format of contemporary Bibles, with two columns and running headlines are a continuation of this innovation in Bible design that occurs in the 13th century.
