Item No: mca1611282
Additional Title: Missal
Script: Gothic bookhand
Language: Latin
Folio Number: f. 128v
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: Crucifixion with the Virgin Mary and St. John
Notes: The small miniature in the lower margin, almost a duplicate of a larger version of the Crucifixion on the previous folio, was placed there for the priest to kiss as part of the celebration of the Eucharist. One often finds two images of the Crucifixion at the Canon of the Mass so that the larger, more beautiful miniature would be preserved from the wear of repeated kissing. This missal was intended for use in St. Catherine's Hospital in Forchheim, Germany.
