Initial P with St. John the Evangelist
These leaves can be dated to ca. 1430-1440.
This initial begins the first antiphon at Lauds for the of the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul (June 29), "Petrus et Johannes ascendebant in templum ad horam orationis nonam." (Peter and John went up to the temple at the ninth hour, the hour of prayer).
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.
