- St. Gregory enthroned
- This image depicts Pope Gregory I (ca. 540-604). Although the miniature has been cut away from the text that it was made to decorate, a fragment of a rubric on the reverse of this cutting explains that the chapter following will describe the first order of angels, known as Seraphim. Thus the manuscript from which this cutting came may have contained Gregory's Homily 34, which described the nine orders of the hierarchy of angels.
- This image shows the reverse of a cutting with a miniature. A portion of the miniature that decorated this side of the leaf is still visible and depicts angels surrounded by a cloud. The remaining text relates that this portion of the manuscript dealt with the first order of angels, known as Seraphim.
- This cutting can be dated to ca. 1480.
