Initial A with the Resurrection
These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
This initial begins the first antiphon of Lauds for Easter, "Angelus autem domini descendit de caelo et accendens revolit lapidem" (An angel of the Lord, however, came from heaven and removed the stone).
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.
