[Leaf from a Miniature Bible, Mid 13th Century, France]

Description: A leaf from a miniature Bible in Latin from France, ca. 1250-1275. Text organized in 2 columns, gothic script (texualis formata) and displays 1 Chronicles 23-25. A notable feature of this particular leaf is that the writing begins "below top line" which suggests the manuscript was written after 1230 (see: N.R. Ker, "From 'Above Top Line; to 'Below Top Line': A Change in Scribal Practice," Celtica, 5 [1960], 13-16). Note also that the chapter numbers were added later (standardization was begun in Paris ca. 1230).
Date: [1250..1275]
