Initial C with the Last Supper
This cutting can be dated to ca. 1325.
This initial probably begins the Introit for the feast of Corpus Christi, "Cibavit eos ex adype frumenti ..." (Full ears of wheat are the nourishment he gives them), as suggested by the iconography. The illumination is by a follower of the Cologne illuminator Johannes van Valkenburg, a Franciscan scribe and illuminator active from the late thirteenth century through the first quarter of the fourteenth. Another cutting in the Free Library's collection has been attributed to his hand (Lewis E M 4:3).
