Initial L with St. Lawrence
These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
This initial begins the first antiphon of Lauds for the feast of St. Lawrence (August 10), "Laurentius ingressus est martyr et confesus est nomen domini jesu christi" (Lawrence entered with the spirit of the martyr and confessed the name of the Lord Jesus Christ).
Lewis E M 65:1-78 were once thought to have come from a single manuscript associated with the Cistercian monastery at Zwettl in Austria. It has been determined, however, that the leaves are from a number of separate manuscripts and were likely produced by a team of scribes and artists at the scriptorium of the Benedictine monastery at Melk.
