The Prayer Book of Queen Beatrice is a manuscript of Christian prayers addressed to the Virgin Mary made in Italy in the second half of the fifteenth century for Beatrice of Aragon, Queen Consort of Bohemia and Hungary. Beatrice's coat of arms is pictured on the opening page, where the text's compiler, Saint Bonaventure, is depicted in an initial (fol. 1r). A miniature of the resurrected Christ displaying his wounds (fol. 172v) opens the final series of prayers. Pen-flourished initials of gold and blue further embellish the text.
