Notes: This book of hours contains the Dutch translations of some of the devotional texts typically found in the Latin books of hours popular in the late Middle Ages. The Dutch translations were made around 1380 by Geert Groote, one of the founders of a popular religious movement in the Netherlands. Known as the Devotio Moderna, or "Modern Devotion," the movement emphasized devotion to the life and humanity of Christ and aimed to enhance the spiritual lives of the laity.

The miniature on the verso is a post-medieval addition to the manuscript.
