Initial D with St. Andrew the Apostle
This initial begins the Introit for the vigil of the feast of St. Andrew the Apostle (Nov. 30), "Dominus secus mare galilee vidit duos fratres Petrum et Andream ..." (The Lord, passing by the sea of Galilee, saw the two brothers Peter and Andrew). It was executed by an illuminator known as the Master of the Dominican Effigies after his eponymous manuscript in the Florentine church Santa Maria Novella. Active in Florence throughout the second quarter of the fourteenth century, the Master of the Dominican Effigies collaborated with and appears to have inherited commissions from Pacino da Buonaguida, who illuminated two cuttings in the Free Library's collection (Lewis E M 25:7a and 8).
This cutting is from the same manuscript as Lewis E M 48:14.
