Example text

Made in southern Germany about 1440, but the provenance of the codex is not recorded. Its opening miniature on folio 1 verso is unusual for a Speculum manuscript. 24 Unlike the Darmstadt Hs 2505 of the Speculum, the entry into Egypt of Chapter XI does not show the falling of the idols at the passage of Christ (fig. II-15). 23. Reproductions of the miniatures of this manuscript, in color but reduced size, were published with a few pages of the text in Heilsspiegel, with an Afterword and Explanation by Horst Appuhn, in Die bibliophilen Taschenbücher series, no.

On folio 1 verso is written "Officium de Sancto Johanne de Bridlyntona" in a script very like that of the text. This Johannes was a regular prior of Bridlington in the County of York; he had studied at Oxford and was canonized in 1401.
