Abstract

The probability of a Hereford origin for the so-called Hereford Troper (London, BL, MS Cotton Caligula A.xiv (troper) is re-examined. The longstanding opinion that the paintings in the troper share an exclusive stylistic affinity with those in a gospel lectionary known to have been at Hereford at an early date (Cambridge, Pembroke College, MS 302) is challenged, and it is proposed that the Hereford provenance of the 11th-century gospel-lectionary does not constitute reliable evidence concerning the origin of the troper (now also called the Caligula Troper).
