“Are you there God? It’s us at the Schoenberg Institute!” A bearded man, possibly God the Father, is poking his head out of the first initial to this bifolium. Ms Coll. 591, folder 36, fols. 12v and 13r.
This opening is a fragment of a pontifical, illuminated in Southern France between 1075 and 1099. Pontificals were books of liturgical services that were performed solely by bishops.
