Abstract

This leaf, created in southern Germany ca. 1475, contains illustrations to the Sext and None segments of De Septem Stationibus Passionis Christi. This anonymous text, written in rhymed verse, was often appended to the Speculum Humanae Salvationis, which may have ultimately been the context for this leaf. The effect of the images, written and illuminated on paper with heavy ink outlines and washes of color, closely resembles that of colored woodcuts from the same period.

Text Note

Fragment from lines 154-203 in Lutz and Perdrizet edition, incorporating the last three lines of Hora tertia, Hora sexta, and the first 21 lines of Hora nona, ending "O pie domine rogo te per mortem tuam amarissimam"

Hand note

Cursive hybrid book script

Decoration Note

Two half-page miniatures, ink drawings with watercolor washes in red, blue, green, pink, and yellow; capitals at beginnings of lines struck with red, with fully red capital beginning fourth line; rubrics in red; text in black ink
