This cutting can be dated to ca. 1420.
This miniature marked the beginning of the Canon of the Mass, "Te igitur" (You therefore [most merciful father]), the text of which is not included in the manuscript. Below the image is another Crucifixion, but in this case the body of Christ is only suggested by the bleeding heart and the blood from the three nails that pierced his hands and feet. This marginal image was placed there for the celebrating priest to kiss as he read the prayer.
