Call numberLewis E M 25:7
(Philadelphia, United States, Free Library of Philadelphia, John Frederick Lewis Collection of European Manuscripts)
PublisherFree Library of Philadelphia
- Initial D with King David praying to God
- This initial probably begins Psalm 38, 'Dixi custodiam vias meas ut non delinquam in lingua mea posui ori meo ....' (I said I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue). This psalm marks the second major liturgical division of the psalms according to the canonical hours. Psalm 38 was read every day at Matins on Tuesdays. As is typical for the illustration of this psalm, King David points to his mouth as he prays to God, literally acting out, by pointing to his mouth, the first words of the psalm.
- This cutting can be dated to ca. 1470.
