Initial I with Saints John and Mark writing the Gospels
This cutting can be dated to ca. 1530. The paper was made in Nackel near Posen and can be identified by the watermark of a crowned escutcheon containing a doubled cross.
This initial begins the Introit for the feast of St. John the Evangelist (Dec. 27), "In medio ecclesiae aperuit os ei[us] ..." (In the middle of the temple, he opened his mouth). Lewis E M 1:19-22 and E M 42:4-9 are from the same manuscript.
