Twelfth-Century Greek Liturgical Lectionary
[Liturgical Lectionary of the Greek Gospels].
[Byzantium, 12th century].
Illuminated manuscript fragment on vellum. (BRMS 12)
The lectionary provides the scriptural readings for the liturgy on specific days during the church year. These leaves, one portion of an otherwise unknown Greek lectionary, include the readings for Easter Week, taken primarily from the Gospel of Matthew, and the Twelve Stations of the Cross. The Byzantine script is a fine rounded example from the twelfth century, with small, square-shaped breathing marks, intonation markings in magenta, and fine gilded initials and rubrics.
