Description

A closeup of the illuminated letter P in the 1407AD Latin Bible on display in Malmesbury Abbey, Wiltshire, England. It was hand written in Belgium, by Gerard Brils, for reading aloud in a monastery.

The illumination is a capital letter P since the letters following are ETRUS, making the word PETRUS (Peter in Latin).

The text is the beginning of the First Epistle of Peter and reads:


<poem> multi: tudinem peccatorum Explicit epistola beati iacobi apostoli In cipit epistola beati petri apostoli prima Petrus apo stolus ihe su christi ele ctis adue nis disper sionis pon ti galaciae capadocie asye et bithinie secundum prescienciam </poem>

This is a faithful photographic reproduction of an original two-dimensional work of art. The work of art itself is in the public domain for the following reason:

The official position taken by the Wikimedia Foundation is that "faithful reproductions of two-dimensional public domain works of art are public domain, and that claims to the contrary represent an assault on the very concept of a public domain". For details, see When to use the PD-Art tag.
This photographic reproduction is therefore also considered to be in the public domain.
