Purchase by the Department of Art History
Original cutting of a manuscript on animal parchment, it depicts the initial 'F' along with a lion, a camel, a dog chasing a rabbit, birds, a palm tree and flowers. These antiphonals were used during the medieval era as song books that would include the chants to be sung at certain canonical hours.
