Additional Title: Choir book
Script: Gothic bookhand
Language: Latin
Folio Number: 66:24 front
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: Initial B with the Trinity
Notes: This initial begins the Introit for Trinity Sunday, "Bededicta sit sancta trinitas..." (Blessed be the Holy Trinity). This image of the Trinity, in which God the Father presents his Son crucified under the wings of the dove of the Holy Spirit, is also known as the Mercy-Seat Trinity. It emphasizes in sentimental terms the paternal nature of God and the human suffering of the Son, following certain tendencies in late medieval devotion to focus on the human nature of Christ.
