These cuttings can be dated to ca. 1330-1345.
This initial begins the Introit for Trinity Sunday, "Benedicta sit sancta Trinitas ..." (Blessed be the Holy Trinity).
Lewis E M 46:5a-b are from the same manuscript but were executed by different illuminators. The dividing up of labor in this way is not unusual, especially as the demand for luxury choir books grew in the fourteenth century. The illuminator of Lewis E M 46:5a has not been identified.
