Rare Book Department
These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
This initial begins the first antiphon of Lauds for the second Sunday in Lent, "Domine labia mea aperies et os meum annuntiabit laudem tuam." (O Lord, open my lips and my mouth shall proclaim Your praise).
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.
