Initial S with St. Martin of Tours
This initial begins the Introit for Mass on the feast of the Translation of St. Martin of Tours, "Statuit ei dominus testamentum pacis..." (The Lord made to him a covenant of peace). 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.
