Initial C with St. Laurence of Rome
This cutting can be dated to ca. 1470.
This initial begins the Introit for the feast of St. Laurence (Aug. 10): "Confessio et pulchritudo in conspectus eius ...," (Glory and beauty wait on his presence). The illumination has been attributed to the Milanese illuminator Venturino Mercati, active in the third quarter of the fifteenth century.
