Antiphonale page

Vellum page from a Antiphonale

Northern Italian

15th century

An illuminated page showing the beginning of the tract for the Thursday after Ash Wednesday “Lacta“. Embellished with 13 figures with halos, presumably the 12th apostles and Christ. Judas should lack a halo but there is wide variation in medieval depictions. The recumbent/sleeping ones are Peter, James and John at Gethsemane. The reverse is the lament psalm 55.
