Unicode is a specialized font for medievalists, with an enormous number of variant letterforms, which are assigned to the Private Use Area of Unicode. It adheres to the MUFI conventions that have been adopted by medievalists to supplement Unicode.

From the website (accessed 2019-05-15):

Junicode (short for Junius-Unicode) is a TrueType/OpenType font for medievalists with extensive coverage of the Latin Unicode ranges, plus Runic and Gothic. The font comes in four faces. Of these, regular and italic are fullest, featuring complete implementation of the Medieval Unicode Font Initiative recommendation, version 4.0. The bold and bold italic faces are less full.
