PublisherFree Library of Philadelphia
- Initial I with St. John the Evangelist
- This initial begins the Introit for the feast of John the Evangelist (Dec. 27), 'In medio ecclesiae aperuit os ejus,' (In the middle of the church, he opened his mouth). It was executed by an illuminator known as the Master of the Dominican Effigies after his eponymous manuscript in the Florentine church Santa Maria Novella. Active in Florence throughout the second quarter of the fourteenth century, the Master of the Dominican Effigies collaborated with and appears to have inherited commissions from Pacino da Buonaguida, who illuminated two cuttings in the Free Library's collection (Lewis E M 25:7a and 8). This cutting is from the same manuscript as Lewis E M 25:33.
- This image shows the reverse of a cutting with an historiated initial from a gradual.
