Additional Title: Antiphonary
Rare Book Department
These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
This initial begins the first antiphon at Lauds for the feast of the Annunciation to the Virgin (March 25), "Missus est Gabriel Angelus ad Mariam Virginem desponsatam Joseph." (The angel Gabriel was sent to the Virgin Mary betrothed to Joseph).
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.
