Notes: Initial L with St. Lucy of Syracuse
Notes: This initial from an undetermined source most likely began a prayer or some type of devotion to St. Lucy of Syracuse. Her feast day is December 13th. According to legend, she plucked out her own eyes in order to remain chaste; thus, she became the patron saint of blindness. As in this initial, one of her attributes is a platter with two eyes on it.
