E0100 Leaf from an Italian Pocket Bible

Subject

Bible

Description

The Bible from which this loose leaf has been taken was created nearly 750 years ago. The vellum is especially thin and the script is exceptionally small (probably written with a raven's feather), making it a remarkable scribal accomplishment. Denison also owns another leaf from this same source manuscript, located in the Fifty Leaves from Medieval Manuscripts portfolio box, item 11.  The text here is Leviticus 23-25.
