This chapter surveys the use of Early Carolingian minuscule script in Italy. It discusses the transition from various Pre-Caroline cursive bookscripts to a distinctive Italian variant of the Carolingian hand, which occurred gradually after Charlemagne’s conquest of Italy in 774. The author also evaluates the spread of the script through Northern and Central Italy during the ninth and into the tenth century.
