Call numberLewis E M 29:9
(Philadelphia, United States, Free Library of Philadelphia, John Frederick Lewis Collection of European Manuscripts)
PublisherFree Library of Philadelphia
- Initial T with a kneeling figure, possibly King David, communicating with God
- This initial probably begins the hymn, 'Tu, Trinitas Unitas,' (O three in one, and one in three). Attributed to Pope St. Gregory the Great (540-604), this hymn is sung at Matins on Friday in the Divine Office. The illuminator is working in the style of the Ferrarese artist Guglielmo Giraldi, who was active from ca. 1445 to 1490. Although the landscape is by an undistinguished hand, the features of the figures' faces recall Guglielmo's technique.
- This image shows the reverse of a cutting with an historiated intial from a hymnal.
