Today is Good Friday when the Church commemorates the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death upon the cross at Calvary. The scene marks the central feature of this exquisite #illuminated initial in the 14th century Vaux Psalter (MS 233). The second image shows you some of the additinal features on the #sumptuous #vellum page, including a series of #grotesques on the upper #margin and delicate #floral decorations. #GoodFriday #HolyWeek #Easter #EasterWeekend #JesusChrist #Faith #devotion #prayer #Church #illuminatedmanuscript #illuminatedmanuscripts #manuscripts #archivesofinstagram #librariesofinstagram #LambethPalaceLibrary
