Notes: This cutting has been dated to ca. 1485.
Notes: This miniature introduces the Hours of the Holy Spirit, which begins on the reverse. The Hours of the Holy Spirit is usually illustrated with the Pentecost, but here the artist has chosen instead to highlight the position of the Holy Spirit within the Trinity. The miniature, from the same manuscript as Lewis E M 1:2, was painted by the Master of Guillaume Lambert, an illuminator active in Lyons from 1475 to 1485. He is named after the scribe Guillaume Lambert, who signed his name in another manuscript illuminated by our artist.
