In the beginning of 800’s, in the reign of Carolus Magnus (or “Karolus”, as himself was signing), a large reformation of the written characters was conducted under the authority of Alcuin, Paul Diacre and Theodulfe. The new style, named “Caroline” script, was completely setted up between 820 to 830. It was a regular script, with a little few of ligatures, very legible, but only with lowercase. The capitals remains the old Romans ones.
We have created the font as to be adapted for contemporary users, making difference between U and V, I and J, which has not any relevance for ancient Latin scribes, and naturally with Thorn, Oslash, Lslash, W… and usual accented characters who was no more existing by the time. Titlings (initial letters, without accents), historical and contextual alternates completes the set (In two separate files for MacOS9).
