The Book of Hours of the Morgades Bishop

 
 
 
 

In the fourteenth century, with the aim that the exercise of private devotion should be carried out under the best possible conditions, two objects were necessary: a written support and an iconic representation, of which the Book of Hours of the Morgades Bishop is a great example.

The work, in fact, brings together all the characteristics of the genre and adds a new and significant: the enrichment of its original iconographic program with a series of images taken from other codes.

The original, with the signature No. 88, is kept in the Episcopal de Vic Library (Vic, Spain).
