Notes: This leaf is from a set of thirty-one leaves that were cut from a single manuscript that once comprised a complete Bible.

This page begins the second epistle of Peter, which was thought to have been written by Peter when he was bishop of Rome. The historiated initial P depicts St. Peter with his attribute, a cross. The cross that he holds refers to his manner of death, for, like Christ, he was crucified.
