Book of Hours?

Item Info

Item No: mcai180011
Additional Title: Book of Hours?
Language: Latin
Folio Number: front 18:1
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: Last Judgment with the Virgin Mary and St. John the Evangelist
Notes: This leaf and four others in the Free Library's collections (Lewis E M 18:2-3b) were likely intended for insertion in the same book of hours. Although there is no text on these leaves to confirm this destination, Netherlandish illuminators often painted full-page miniatures on blank parchment that would then be inserted into these popular devotional books. The Last Judgment with the Virgin Mary and John the Baptist kneeling in adoration below Christ as judge, for example, commonly prefaced the Penitential Psalms in Netherlandish books of hours.

The miniature has suffered some damage and several areas have been repainted at a later date.
