   IM-11139 - Medieval Bible Leaf from the Johannes Grusch Workshop, c. 1247 Paris



IM-11139: (290x190mm) Original leaf from a medieval manuscript folio Bible with illuminations from the Johannes Grusch WorkshopFormerly owned by the Abbey of St. Genevieve in Paris.

Latin gothic script, hand-written in brown ink, on animal vellum. Rubricated chapter numbers, initials & marginalia in red and blue. 50 lines of text in double columns. Four multi-lined illuminated initials alternating in deep blue and red with delicate red and blue penwork & extending along the length of the outer margins.

France: Paris, c. 1247.

The large size of the page is unusual in 13th century Bible production! The book from which this leaf came was a very high-quality production, scribed in the Johannes Grusch Workshop in Paris. The calligraphy is excellent, and the vellum is of the finest style.

The text contains Isaiah 30:21 - 34:4: “Et aures tue audient...'' (And thy ears shall hear the word of one admonishing thee behind thy back...Like as the lion roareth, and the lion's whelp upon his prey, and when a multitude of shepherds shall come against him, he will not fear at their voice, nor be afraid of their multitude: so shall the Lord of hosts come down to fight upon mount Sion, and upon the hill thereof. As birds flying, so will the Lord of hosts protect Jerusalem, protecting and delivering, passing over and saving...There shall be faith in thy times: riches of salvation, wisdom and knowledge: the fear of the Lord is his treasure...For the Lord is our judge, the Lord is our lawgiver, the Lord is our king: he will save us....).
