PublisherFree Library of Philadelphia
- Initial S with the Entombment and Lamentation
- The text comes from the blessing of the chalice during mass, 'Simili modo posteaquam cenatum est accipiens et hunc preclarum calicem' (Similarly, when the supper was ended, taking also this goodly chalice). The reverse of the cutting, however, is blank, and there are no rubrics instructing the celebrant, suggesting that the cutting is not from a missal and may instead have come from a manuscript that was used for personal devotion. The initial depicts the Entombment and the Lamentation over Christ's body. The scenes decorating the border illustrate (beginning at the top) the sacrifice of Isaac, Moses and the snake, Absalom caught by the oak, the flagellation of Christ, Peter's denial, and Christ bearing the Cross.
- This cutting can be dated to ca. 1525.
