Historical Review Workshops Part 3 — Uncials

Myrna Rosen will continue with the next part of her historical review — Uncials.

The beginnings of the Uncial hands were developed from the late Roman cursive hand around the 4th c. by Greek and Roman scribes but the use spread throughout the Middle East to the England/Ireland as well as northern Africa over the next six hundred years. Examples of the various hands can be seen in many religious texts, such as, the Book of Kells, the Lindisfarne Gospels, Codex Vaticanus, Codex Alexandrinus, or Codex Sinaiticus.
