Kent State University Leaf 28

This leaf is from a French Book of Hours from the mid-fifteenth century, and measures 15 x 10.5 cm. The metal alloys used in the decorations have tarnished, and there is visible chemical deterioration of the vellum. Some of the leaves display smudging of the ink when still wet. See Denison University Leaf 28 for more information about this manuscript.

Text: The leaves we have seen indicate that this Book of Hours accords with the Use of Metz; see especially Leaf 28 in the Kent State, Denison, Kenyon, and Lima portfolios for evidence. This leaf contains text from the Hours of the Virgin at Terce, including Psalms 121. A scan of the verso is not currently available.

-dicio: sedes super domum David.
Rogate quae ad pacem sunt Hierusalem: et abundantia diligentibus te.
Fiat pax in virtute tua: et abundantia in turribus tuis.
Propter fratres meos, et proximos meos: loquebar pacem de te.
Propter domum Domini Dei nostri: quaesivi bona tibi.

Ant. Sub tuam protectionem confugimus ubi infirmi acceperunt virtutem et propter hoc tibi psallim[ ] dei genitrix virgo. Cplm.

Paradisi porta per evam cunctis clausa est et per beatam virginem
