   IM-2880 - c. 1247 Bible Leaf with miniature painting of Zechariah



IM-2880: (290x193mm) Original leaf from a medieval manuscript folio Bible with illuminations from the Johannes Grusch Workshop.  Latin gothic script, hand-written in brown ink, on animal vellum. Rubricated chapter numbers, initials and marginalia in red and blue. 50 lines of text in double columns.     France: Paris, c. 1247.


The large size of the page is unusual in 13th century Bible production!     

Verso has a six-line historiated initial depicting Zechariah holding a scroll and extending along the left margin with the extender containing two dragon-like creatures facing each other. Recto has a five-line illuminated initial in pink and white on a blue ground with burnished gold interior and extending into the center margin in pink, gold and orange.

This leaf contains Aggeus (Haggai) 2:4 through 24 and Zechariah I through 2:9 ''Quis in vobis est...'' (Who is left among you, that saw this house in its first glory? ''Thus saith the Lord of hosts: Turn ye to me, saith the Lord of hosts: and I will turn to you...).
