Additional Title: Works of St. Gregory?
Script: Bastarda
Language: Latin
Folio Number: front 42:23a
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: St. Gregory enthroned
Notes: This cutting can be dated to ca. 1480.
Notes: This image depicts Pope Gregory I (ca. 540-604). Although the miniature and border decoration were cut away from the text that they were made to decorate, a fragment of a rubric on the reverse of this cutting explains that the chapter following will describe the first order of angels, known as Seraphim. Thus the manuscript from which this cutting came may have contained Gregory's Homily 34, which described the nine orders of the hierarchy of angels.
