Initial S with the Pentecost
This initial begins the Introit for Pentecost Sunday, "Spiritus domini replevit orbem terrarum ..." (The Spirit of the Lord fills the whole world).
Although executed by different artists, physical evidence indicates that Lewis E M 46:8-9 and E M 74:10 are from the same manuscript. This initial has been attributed to Ser Ricciardo di Nanni, a Florentine illuminator active from the 1450s to 1480.
This leaf can be dated to ca. 1460.
