Free Library of Philadelphia


This manuscript has been dated to ca. 1405. The scribe Johannes Parvus signed his name on f. 206v.

This miniature of the "Mercy-Seat" Trinity opens the Hours of the Holy Spirit. This type of Trinity shows God the Father holding the Crucifix, with the Holy Spirit flying between them. This miniature was painted by the Luçon Master, one of the finest painters working in France in the beginning of the fifteenth century. His work is a prime example of the International Style, a style associated with courtly European culture at this time.
