Additional Title: Prayer
Script: Hybrida
Language: Dutch
Folio Number: ff. 109v-110r
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: Dutch Prayer
Notes: The prayers in this manuscript were written in Dutch rather than the usual Latin. Unlike most areas of Europe, devotional manuscripts produced in the Netherlands tended to be written in the vernacular language, a consequence of the spiritual movement popular in the region known as the Devotio moderna (Modern or New Devotion). Because of the movement's emphasis on personal devotion practiced through pious reading and writing, many devotional texts were translated into the language spoken and read by the majority of its followers.
