Pfeffer Mediæval is the idealised image of a Carolingian minuscule, the script of Charlemagne, on which our modern Antiqua has been modelled.

"A very good Caroline miniscule, which is the main basis for later Anglo-Saxon script. Strictly speaking you should be using Anglo-Caroline miniscule for Latin and late Anglo-Saxon miniscule for the vernacular, but I'm sure we can let you off. :-)"
