The Biblioteca de la Abadía of Montserrat preserves the Liber Horarum Rothomagensis (Ms. 851), a book of hours made for the use of Rouen at the end of the fifteenth century or at the beginning of the sixteenth century.

There is no agreement about the identity of the artist who illuminated the manuscript, but it is quite clear that the illuminator was active in the school of Rouen (maybe a follower of the Master of the Rouen Echevinage)

The Illuminations Amuse the Faithful

The manuscript has a rich cycle of full-page miniatures mainly focused on the Virgin, a figure that receives the illuminator’s special attention because of her central position in the miniatures throughout the manuscript.

In the illuminations, gold color highlights the elongated figures, their cloths and the architectural details in the background. Foliate motives, fruits, animals, and hybrids embellish the elegant text pages amusing the reader of the devotional book.
