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 of this leaf, the first responsory of Matins begins with an initial [B] in red and purple penwork, historiated by a portrait of St. Narcissus and St. Afra with a faded demon wrapped around the ascender. This leaf was part of the "Magic Carpet on Wheels" traveling exhibition in the 1950s and was purchased in 1956 by the St. Louis Public Library (St. Louis, Missouri) with other manuscripts from the exhibition.
