Fragment of a missal, possibly French, 14th century

Identifier: MS 211/XIV

Scope and Contents

A cropped leaf of a Missal, probably Cluniac. It contains the Proper for the following saints: Eucherius (16 Nov.), Anianus and Gregory (17 Nov.), Odo, Abbot of Cluny (19 Nov.), Edmund K.M. (20 Nov)., Columbanus (21 Nov.), Cecilia (22 Nov.). The inclusion of St Edmund suggests an origin of East Anglia, but the hand seems to be French. There are coloured initials, in red and blue, and some rubrication. The leaf is quite damaged in places, especially along the inner edge (orientated from f. 1r), and there is also a hole near to a capital 'S', and to the middle of the page. The verso side is almost illegible because of darkening.
