Item:173670037536Parchment, a single leaf, c.335×230mm (ca. 13¼×9 inches), apparently almost an entire leaf only very slightly cropped, written in 2 columns of 31 lines, in a fine angular gothic bookhand, in two sizes, in dark brown and red inks, decorated with initials of various sizes alternately blue or red, with calligraphic flourishes, and with an original medieval folio number "cxviij" in the upper margin of the recto in red ink, a natural flaw in the parchment has been marked by the scribe by drawing around it in red ink; used as a pastedown and thus with some darkening, traces of glue, and other damage (see scans and photos -- the leaf is too big to fit on my scanner). TextThe recto begins with a mass for St Katherine (25 November), followed by one for St Virgilius, bishop of Salzburg (27 November): these are the last two saints of the sanctorale. Following these, the largest initial, which looks like a "U", is in fact a calligraphic "T" for the text "Terribilis est locus ...", opening the Mass for the Dedication of a Church, with the rubric "In dedicatione ecclesie".
