- In this initial, a group of Dominican friars, identified by their white and black robes, stand in adoration below the figure of God. Although the precise moment in liturgy that the initial begins remains to be identified, one can surmise from the iconography that the original choir book belonged to a Dominican convent. This initial was illuminated by an artist working in the circle of the Italian painter Neri da Rimini, whom documents show to have been active in the early fourteenth century.
