Beginning of Amos
These leaves seem to form a group because of the consistency of the leaf and text measurements and the ruling pattern; leaves are paginated with pencil numbers in the upper left-hand corner of each side of each leaf.
This leaf is from a set of thirty-one leaves that were cut from a single manuscript that once comprised a complete Bible.
This page begins the book of the prophet Amos, one of the twelve minor prophets of the Old Testament. They are referred to as minor because of short length of their books. In the historiated initial that begins the book, Amos is depicted holding a scroll on which his name appears: "Amos propheta."
