- St. Jerome or St. Mark the Evangelist
- This miniature is from an undetermined part of a book of hours and was painted by a follower of Jean Bourdichon, an illuminator who worked mainly in Tours. Since both Sts. Mark and Jerome have the attributes of a book and a lion, and there is no text visible on the reverse, it is difficult to determine who the saint is with certainty. Mark is usually not shown with two books, as if copying one from another, since the Gospels were divinely inspired. The two books would make sense if it were Jerome, who translated in theory from one book to another. The inscription above Jerome is RECE DICTE VU..., could allude to the Vulgate if 'rec'' is read as 'recte'. Jerome, however, is usually shown in cardinal's dress.
