Hours 'de Notre Dame' according to the use of Paris, Written in A.D. 1394 (?) in the Netherlands
Hours 'de Notre Dame' according to the use of Paris, in Latin: preceded by a Creed, French Calendar, Capitula from the Gospels, etc., and followed by:
- The 'Heures del Croys' in Latin (fol. 88v)
- The Hours 'dou Saint Esprit' in Latin (fol. 97)
- 'Les xv Ioies' (fol. 103)
- 'Les vij Requestes', the Office for the Dead (fol. 111)
- suffrages (fol. 138), etc.
The Rubrics and Calendar suggest the Netherlands, and the occurrence of St. Wulfran ('Offran') on the 18th of March instead of the 20th points to the neighbourhood of Utrecht. Fol. 137v shows that the book was written for a lady, and the 'factum anno d. 1394' on fol. 2 is perhaps contemporary.
