(Bibliotheque Nationale.) E, initial letter taken from a German manuscript of the second part of the eleventh century. Latin Gospels written for the abbey of Luxeuil, in Franche-Cornte. (Bibliotheque Nationale.) No. 1 and 4. Fragments of a page border, from a manuscript of the Harleian library No. 2, 800, at the British Museum. These splendid examples of late twelfth-century work are found in the first part of a Lives of the Saints in three volumes. The colours are of great simplicity, covering only the grounds, in accordance with the ironwork after which they were modelled. This manuscript may have been illuminated for the monastery of Arrinstein, near Koblentz. No. 5 and 7. Borders of pages, the motifs of which were taken from another manuscript of the Haleian library in the British Museum, a bible in two volumes n 2798-2799, with the same origins as No. 1 and 4. These two decorations ornamental framing of the page on which the prophecies of Jeremiah begin On the strip of parchment held by the prophet, the original presents the inscription VerbaJeremie, "the words of Jeremiah". At the very beginning of the famous Lamentations, God promises Jeremiah to render him as firm as an iron column or a bronze wall in the face of his enemies. The artist has expressed this in the erect attitude of the prophet, who treads a dragon under foot. With ornamental foliage shooting forth from its mouth, the painter has fashioned the dragon into a splendid decorative motif. Fragment No. 5 Is taken from a page of the Fourth Book of Kings, In the same volume. The prophesying figure is probably Elijah, whose words are represented by the abundant scrolls which coil out of his mouth. No. 6. Fragments of a page border. This twelfth-century motif is taken from the missal which belonged to the Abbey of Saint-Maur-les-Fosses, In the diocese of Paris. No. 8. Border motif taken from the Missal of Saint-Denis, of the thirteenth century. These two examples represent the School of Paris (Paris, Saint-Denis Meaux and Chartres) which came under Oriental influences during the first Gothic period, from 1200 to 1300.
