A leaf of the Gottschalk Antiphonal, written and illustrated by Gottschalk of Lambach at and for the use of the Stiftsbibliothek Lambach (Upper Austria) in the late twelfth century. On the recto, the first Responsory of Matins for the feast of St. Benedict begins with a six-line initial [F] in red and purple historiated with a bust of the Saint. Until at least 1990, this leaf was hung on the wall of a hotel in Bad Gastein, Austria, but as of 2018 was reported as lost. ...exceptis dei famulis.../...tribus tuere nostros exitus...
