Additional Title: Gradual
Script: Rotunda
Language: Latin
Folio Number: front 73:20
Source: Rare Book Department
Notes: Initial I with Christ adored by a king and two Dominican friars and a king
Notes: This initial begins the Introit for the Wednesday in Holy Week, "In nomini domini omne genu flectatur celestium terrestrium et infernorum ..." (Everything in heaven and on earth and under the earth must bend the knee before the name of Jesus). The appearance of the Dominican friars suggests that this choir book was intended for use in a Dominican convent. The identity of the king remains to be determined.

Lewis E M 73:10-13 and 15-20 are from the same gradual. Lewis E M 73:14 is from an antiphonary produced as part of the same set.
