This initial begins an unidentified chant used in the celebrations for the feast of St. Vincent Ferrer (April 5), a Dominican saint who died in 1419 and was canonized in 1458. The initial was illuminated by an artist within the circle of the Master of Petrarch’s Triumphs, so-called from his work in a grand illuminated French manuscript of Petrarch’s Triumphs done for Louis XII (r. 1499-1515). The work of this master and his followers is closely related to the workshop of Jean Pichore, an illuminator active in Paris at the beginning of the sixteenth century.
