Abstract

A consideration of the relative chronology of the drawings and paintings in among the five completed miniatures of Berlin, Staatsbibliothek Preussischer Kulturbesitz, MS theo. lat. fol 34, an epistle lectionary, presumably of the 10th century. Concludes that the originally intended iconography of the scenes in the Berlin manuscript is, in each case, distinct from that of the corresponding scene in the Codex Egberti (Trier, Stadtbibliothek, MS 24) and that the iconographic elements which peculiarly link the the Berlin manuscript to the Trier manuscript were added after the paintings were finished.
