Notes: This cutting and Lewis E M 25:7a are from a codex known as the Laudario of the Compagnia di Sant'Agnese. The codex survives only in fragments now dispersed among European and American libraries and museums. A laudario contains hymns in the vernacular language to be sung by members of a lay religious community, in this case the community known as the Compagnia di Sant'Agnese of Santa Maria del Carmine in Florence. The original codex was illuminated by two Florentine artists: Pacino di Bonaguida, the artist of the Free Library's cuttings, and the Master of the Dominican Effigies, an anonymous artist and contemporary of Pacino.
Notes: This cutting can be dated to ca. 1340.
