Ohio State University Leaf 25
Otto Ege identifies this leaf as coming from a Psalter made in France in the late fourteenth century, but it seems more likely to have come from a Book of Hours. One reason for this suspicion is that some of the leaves from this manuscript contain text in French--this is one of only a few manuscripts in the Ege portfolio not entirely in Latin. The vellum measures 18 x 12 cm and is thick and dirty (Ege speculates it may have been exposed to dampness); it has been cut or torn across the top edge. The lining is done in ink, with the primary text in brown and blue, orange, and white in the decoration. There are large illuminated initials with painted blocks. In the left margin on both sides is a large gold and blue bar with pointed ivy, and the decoration bleeds through to the opposite side of the leaf. See Denison University Leaf 25 for more information about this manuscript.
Text: The end of the Seven Penitential Psalms and the beginning of the Litanies (recto); the Litanies occupy all of the verso.
Ohio State University Leaf 25 Recto
disperdes inimicos meos.
Et perdes omnes, qui tribulant animam meam: quoniam ego servus tuus sum.
Ant: Ne reminiscaris Domine delicta nostra, vel parentem nostrorum: neque vindictam sumas de peccatis nostris. La Letani.
Kyrie eleison. Christe eleison. Kyrie eleison. Christe audi nos. Pater de caelis Deus, miserere nobis. Fili redemptor mundi Deus, miserere nobis. Spiritus sancte Deus, miserere nobis.
Sancta Trinitas unus Deus, m. n.
[Psalms 142] ...thou shalt destroy mine enemies. And thou shalt destroy all, that afflict my soul: because I am thy servant.
Glory be to the father. Ant: Remember not, O Lord, our or our parents' offences: neither take vengeance of our sins.
Lord have mercy upon us. Christ have mercy upon us. Lord have mercy upon us. Christ hear us. Christ graciously hear us. God the Father of heaven, have mercy upon us. God the Son redeemer of the world, have mercy upon us. God the Holy Ghost, have mercy upon us. Holy Trinity one God, have mercy upon us.
