Prayers attributed to Saint Bonaventure, early 16th century

Identifier: MS 114/ff. 56r-57v


The rubric Oracio sancte Bonaventure ante missam which refers to these prayers appears at the bottom of 55r, but it is followed by a blank page.

First prayer: it begins on f. 56r with the words Ecce celestis Pater recolens mortem illam and ends on f. 56v with ut in statera crucis totius mundi peccata libraret ipsa te pater cogat miserere nobis. As indicated by the rubric Oratio ante missam, this prayer should be recited before the Mass.

Second prayer (De Domina): it begins on f. 56v with the words O Domina et patrona nostra sancta Maria perpetua virgo and ends on f. 57r with ad conspectum domine sue. Amen.
