Hours of the Virgin, apparently according to the use of Tournay, Written in the first half of the 15th century in the Netherlands
Hours of the Virgin, apparently according to the use of Tournay: preceded by:
- A French Calendar (fol. 1v)
- 'Hore sancte Crucis' (fol. 20)
- 'Hore Sancti Spiritus' (fol. 28), etc.
- The Penitential Psalms with Litany (fol. 109)
- 'Quinque Gaudia' (fol. 138)
- 'Officium defunctorum' (fol. 145)
The occurrence of 'Saint Lehyre' (Eleutherius, Feb. 20) in red, and S. Piat (Oct. 1) in the Calendar in red, and in the Litany, shows that the use is of Tournay: St. Guislein also occurs on Oct. 9. St. Cierge (Feb. 28) and St. Ladre (Dec. 17) are strange names. [Ladre is Lazarus, traditionally 1st bp. of Marseille: see Littré under ladre. E.W.B.N.] Leaves are lost after fols. 47, 81, 102.
- Creation: Written in the first half of the 15th century in the Netherlands
