Cincinnati Public Library Leaf 30
This leaf comes from a French Book of Hours made in the middle of the fifteenth century. It measures 38.5 x 28 cm. The text block on both the recto and verso is bordered by a thick hedge of gilded holly and ivy, as well as flowers which Ege identifies as daisy, thistle, cornbottle, and stock. The black ink used for the main text has become less substantial over time, and there is a relative lack of rubrication of response abbreviations.
Text: This leaf contains text from the Hours of the Cross at Nones. A scan of the recto is not currently available.
Reconstruction Note! In Ege's original manuscript, this leaf was followed by what is now Leaf 30 in the Ohio State University portfolio.

Domine Iesu Christe fili Dei vivi, pone passionem,
Incline unto my aid O God.
O Lord make haste to help me.
Glory be to the Father. Hymn.
Jesus Lord at the ninth hour his spirit forth did send: Crying Eli and his soul to father did commend: With a lance a soldier did pierce through his tender side: The earth then trembled and the sun his shining light did hide. V: We adore thee O Christ, and we bless thee. R: For that by thy holy Cross thou hast redeemed the world.
O Lord Jesus Christ the son of the living God, set thy passion...
