Creation PlaceNorthern France

Creator role:scribe

Creator notes:Possibly a single scribe. Script:Textualis precissa for the biblical text; Textualis semi-quadrata for the commentary – grand but not scrupulously even, and declining slightly in regularity after the first two quires. Very occasional calligraphic extension of descenders in the bottom line (e.g. 210v, 211r, 307r).


Decoration:

Historiated or decorated initials, up to 48 lines high, mark the general preface, and the incipit of each biblical book (that for II Timothy has been excised). The work of a single artist, they are constructed from coloured bars (occasionally with interlacing twists), their bowls ornamented with foliate tendrils and ebulliant leaf-bursts, their smaller spaces filled with coloured foliate motifs, set against burnished golden grounds within coloured panels. Linen covers over most letters.


DecorationType:Initial, inhabited Initial letter:P
