Initial I with St. Bernard and Saint Augustine
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. Bernard of Clairvaux (Aug. 20), "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.
