Initial E with the Adoration of the Magi
This initial begins the Introit for Mass on Epiphany, "Ecce advenit dominator Dominus..." (See he comes, our Lord and Ruler). The style of illumination and the illusionistic border decoration with a golden background is typical of Flemish illumination at this time.
This manuscript has been dated to ca. 1530-1550.
