Title

Missal: Missale

Contributor

Ege, Otto F.

Description

Leaf 33. "The Missal, written for the convenience of the priests, combined the separate books formerly used in different parts of the service; namely the Oratorium, Lectionarium, Evangeliarium, Canon, and others. Gutenburg, who printed his famous First Bible about the time this manuscript was written, based his type designs on a contemporary book hand similar to this example. The craftsmen who created this manuscript had the difficult problem of writing, inserted rubrics, and large or small colored initials."
