Medieval Manuscript Leaf, Lectionary, Vellum, France, C.1125-1175. For Sale

Medieval Manuscript Leaf, Lectionary, Vellum, France, C.1125-1175.

This leaf is from a Lectionary that was produced in France (probably Northern France) c.1125-1175.

The maximum size of the leaf is 278mm x 181mm (10 9/10ins. x 7 1/10ins.).

The text is from the lections for the Tuesday in Passion Week. The first lection is from Daniel, chapter 14, verses 28 – 42 (starting here after the introduction). The second lection is from the Gospel according to Saint John, chapter 7, verses 1 – 13 (ending here in the middle of verse 12).

There are 26 lines in a fine Romanesque script in brown ink with a rubric in red .

The leaf is not illuminated and the decoration is limited to one three-line and one one-line initial in red.

The leaf is ruled in blind on the recto and the text is written above the top line.

Corrections to the text have been made on the recto at lines 24, 25 and 26 and on the verso at lines 1, 5 (word added), 13 and 23 (“&” added at the beginning of the line).

In the inside bottom margin there is a natural flaw in the vellum that had been sewn up.

The Lectionary was one of the books required for the celebration of the Mass before the Sacramentary was expanded into the Missal to include all that was required to become the principal book for the celebration of the Mass in the early Middle Ages.

Please be aware of the condition of this item. What you can see in the pictures is exactly what the winning buyer will receive. The leaf has been used to cover a small book and it has lost its four corners. Considering this, the text has not suffered and the leaf is in remarkably good condition.

Payment by Paypal please.
