Western Medieval Manuscripts : Gospel lectionary (Saturday-Sunday)

Western Medieval Manuscripts

<p style='text-align: justify;'>This fragment is a quire of a Gospel lectionary manuscript in majuscule script, probably copied during the 10th century. The manuscript from which it came belonged to the briefer of the two main types, the "Saturday-Sunday" lectionary, giving the lections for Saturdays and Sundays only, except for Holy Week and the period from Easter to Pentecost, for which weekdays are also included. Although by this time the majority of Greek manuscripts were written in minuscule script, some continued to be produced in the majuscule form, mainly liturgical manuscripts and especially lectionaries.</p><p style='text-align: justify;'>Dr Christopher Wright</p>
