Initial G with Two martyr saints
This initial begins the Magnificat antiphon at first Vespers for the Common of Several Martyrs, "Gaudent in celis anime sanctorum ..." (The souls of the saints rejoice in heaven).
An artist active within the circle of Niccolò di Giacomo da Bologna (fl. ca. 1353- 1401), the most famous and prolific Bolognese illuminator working in the second half of the fourteenth century, illuminated this initial. Niccolò headed a large workshop that produced large numbers of choir books for churches and convents in and around Bologna.
