Ohio University Leaf 31
This leaf is from a French Book of Hours made in the middle of the fifteenth century, and measures 18.5 x 13 cm. The marginal ivy emerges from the text block and weaves and subdivides, producing gold leaves and several kinds of colorful flowers; the ivy seems only to be located along the outer margin of each page. The arrangement of this Book of Hours may be in accord with the Use of Paris.
Text: This leaf contains text from the Office of the Dead at Matins, Second Nocturne, into the Third Nocture at "Domine Abstraxisti."
Reconstruction Note! In Ege's original manuscript, this leaf was followed by what is now Leaf 31 in the Rochester Institute of Technology Leaf.
Ohio University Leaf 31 Recto
in inferno protegas me, et abscondas me, donec pertranseat furor tuus, et constitutas mihi tempus, in quo recorderis mei? Putas ne mortuus homo rursum vivet? Cunctis diebus, quibus nunc milito, expecto donec veniat immutatio mea. Vocabis me, et ego respondebo tibi. Operi manuum tuarum porriges dexteram. Tu quidem gressus meos dinumerasti, sed parce peccatis meis. R. Peccantem me quotidie, et non me poenitentem, timor mortis conturbat me: Quia in inferno nulla est redemptio, miserere mei Deus, et salva me. V. De pro
[Job 14] ...in hell thou protect me, and hide me, till thy fury pass, and appoint me a time, wherein thou wilt remember me? Shall man that is dead, thinkest thou live again? All the days, in which I am now in warfare, I expect until my change do come. Thou shalt call me, and I shall answer thee, to the work of thy hands, thou shalt reach thy right hand. Thou indeed hast numbered my steps, but spare thou my sins. R. The fear of death doth trouble me, sinning daily, and not repenting: for that in hell there is no redemption, have mercy upon me O God, and save me. V. [ ]

[Psalms 29:2-5] 2 I will extol thee, O Lord, for thou hast upheld me: and hast not made my enemies to rejoice over me. 3 O Lord my God, I have cried to thee, and then hast healed me. 4 Thou hast brought forth, O Lord, my soul from hell: thou hast saved me from them that go down into the pit. 5 Sing to the Lord, O ye his saints: and give praise to the memory...
