Script: Gothic bookhand
Language: Latin
Folio Number: front
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: Initial D? with the Holy Trinity and border ornament
Notes: This cutting can be dated to ca. 1500.
Notes: This cutting, which has been pasted to a mat, may begin the invitatory of Trinity Sunday, "Deum verum, unum in Trinitate, et Trintatem in Unitate" (The true God, One in Three and Three in One). The iconography of the initial reflects the meaning of the Introit. Jesus Christ the Son, crowned with thorns and holding a Tau Cross symbolizing his sacrifice, God the Father, and Christ again holding a dove as the Holy Spirit are unified by the triangle they hold. The triangle symbolizes the unity of the three expressed in the invitatory.
