Title

Leaf from a 13th century missal

Subject

Missal

Description

"From a 13th century MS., being a liturgical book similar to portions of the modern missal. This example is typical of the period when small manuscripts first came into vogue, and the large bold script of the 12th Century had given place to fine, compact gothic characters as seen on this page. The small initial letters with their neat outlines, and the predominance of bronze-gold and blue, are unmistakably French in origin. Note the fine quality of the vellum. This manuscript was purchased in Lyons, and its identification verified by the Bibliotheque Sainte Genevieve of Paris." -Pages from the Past
