Item:352514176444Original Illuminated Manuscript Book of Hours Leaf, France (Rouen), c. 1490-1510 Text: Popular Medieval Prayer – O INTEMERATA: IM-11795: An original leaf from an illuminated manuscript Book of Hours. 25 lines of text, ruled in red, written in Latin in angular gothic book-hand script on animal vellum. Rubrics in red. This leaf measures 160 x 110 mm (6 1/4 x 4 1/2”). UNUSUAL VIBRANT AND ELABORATE PANEL BORDERS IN A COLORFUL FLORAL (INCLUDING A PANSY – SYMBOL OF HUMILITY) AND GEMSTONE MOTIF ON DEEP BLUE OR LIQUID GOLD GROUND. Style and execution of the miniature paintings in the parent manuscript are closely related to the Master of the Geneva Latini (see Walter 224 & 233 for examples). This Book of Hours leaf was scribed in France: Rouen (Use of Rouen), c. 1490-1510. This is an unusual and very scarce leaf as it clearly identifies the location of the “use” of its parent manuscript: the rubric at the bottom of verso (back) states “usum rothomagen” or use of Rothomagen. “Rothomagen is the Latin Roman and Medieval name for Rouen, France. This is an original, more than 500 years old, not a reproduction, and its condition is excellent, as shown in the photos. The colors and gold are particularly fresh and bright. This leaf continues the popular medieval prayer O Intemerata. This prayer asks for the grace of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s pity and aid, as well as that of John the Evangelist. The prayer also asks for forgiveness of sins and health in both body and soul. Books of Hours are personal prayer books of a devout and status-conscious society and are not only works of art, but cultural documents of their time. They reveal a unique combination of sacred and secular imagery - made of the finest materials, by the best craftsmen, for a small audience that could both appreciate and afford them.
