About this Item

The Stoning of Saint Stephen from a late 15th century Book of Hours (likely Paris) on vellum. Verso: Leaf features St. Stephen in the center of two tormentors preparing to throw stones at him. St. Stephen is depicted kneeling in prayer. The artist sets the figures before a landscape background. Surrounding the miniature on three sides is an ornate foliate border of red & blue flowers, green & blue leaves, blue & gold acanthus leaves. A large bear appears on the lower border. All figures (including the bear) are somewhat illuminated with gold. Below the miniature is a grand 4-line initial "S" for "Stephanus" opening the text painted in gold on a blue background. Recto: 15 lines of text written with black ink and red rubrics in a gothic script. Lovely 2-line initial "B" painted in gold on a red background. Foliate border on one side features red & blue flowers, green leaves, and gold & blue acanthus leaves. The text is from Acts 6:8. The text in Latin reads: Stephanus autem plenus gratia et fortitudine faciebat prodigia et signa magna in populo The English translation is: And Stephen, full of faith and power, performed great wonders and miracles among the people. Slight toning to outer margins. Size: 122 x 86 mm (approx. 4.8 x 3.4 inches). Bookseller Inventory # 1114
