Initial T with Christ holding the Church
This initial begins the Introit for the Dedication of a Church, "Terribilis est locus iste hic domus dei est et porta caeli ..." (This is a fearsome place; it is the house of God and the gate of heaven). Much of the initial has been restored by a nineteenth-century hand, but the style recalls the work of Sienese illumination of the fifteenth century.
This initial has been heavily retouched.
