Additional Title: Antiphonary
Rare Book Department
These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
This initial begins the first antiphon for Lauds of the feast of the Holy Innocents (Dec. 28), "Herodes iratus occidit multos pueros in Bethleham Iudae civitate David" (Enraged, Herod put to death many male childrenof Judae in Bethleham, the city of David).
Lewis E M 65:1-78 were once thought to have come from a single manuscript associated with the Cistercian monastery at Zwettl in Austria. It has been determined, however, that the leaves are from a number of separate manuscripts and were likely produced by a team of scribes and artists at the scriptorium of the Benedictine monastery at Melk.
