Rare Book Department
Initial B with St. Gregory
These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
This initial begins the first antiphon of Lauds for the feast of St. Gregory (March 12), "Beautus gregorius nations romanus nobilitatem suam moribus et probis artibus decoratvit" (Blessed Gregory of the Roman people, adorned his nobility with wit and honorable skill).
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.
