Item No: mcai420203
Additional Title: Missal?
Language: Latin
Folio Number: front
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: Crucifixion
Notes: The original context of this cutting cannot be determined since no text remains on it to identify where it came from. Similar Crucifixion scenes can be found in missals where they preface the Canon of the Mass, as in Lewis E 161. The image may also have functioned as an independent devotional image to be tacked to a wall, like a panel painting. This practice was fairly common in the late Middle Ages when manuscript illuminators found themselves competing with panel painters in the realm of devotional art.
Notes: This cutting can be dated to ca. 1480.
