Initial R with the Three Mary's at the tomb
This cuttings can be dated to ca. 1300.
This initial begins the Introit for Easter Sunday, "Resurrexi, et adhuc tecum sum ..." (I have risen, and I am still with you). As it is told in the Gospels, the morning after Christ's burial, three women came to the tomb and discovered that his body was gone. Mark identifies these women as Mary, the mother of James, Mary Magdalene, and Mary Salome: the three Marys. Their discovery is the first sign of the Resurrection mentioned in the Gospels.
