Officium Hebdomadae Sanctae,

  • File
  • [15 cent., first ½].

The four gospels of the passion as sung in Holy Week followed by the Exultet and other chants for the blessing of candles at the Easter Vigil. Written in a large textura, music on staves throughout. A large illuminated initial at the beginning of each gospel and other smaller illuminated initials.


  • File
  • [c. 1230x1250].

The vulgate text of the psalter written in Paris, [c. 1230x1250], by one excellent hand and corrected by two others, one of whom wrote the cancels ff. 145 and 152-3, the other, who corrected one quire only, wrote the cancel f. 134. There are seven 8-line historiated initials, for psalms 26, 51, 52, 68, 80, 101 and 109; leaves now wanting probably bore those for psalms 1, 38 and 97 which would have completed a common sequence of illustrated psalms (cf. R. Branner, Manuscript painting in Paris in the reign of Saint Louis (Berkeley, Los Angeles and London, 1977), p. 20). The initials, in colour on burnished gold ground, and other lavish decoration of the book are of high quality. The figures all appear to be the work of one hand, very close in style to Branner's 'Dominican Group', notably his 'third master' (op. cit., pp. 59-60).
