CCCC 380
Robert of Cricklade's Speculum fidei
12th century

This manuscript is written in one column, ruled in plummet. It contains a number of exceptional inhabited and decorated litterae notabiliores that are by Simon Master, a professional artist whose work is also illustrated in St Albans manuscripts. These are in blues, reds, greens, and golds. Many enlarged initials in single colors are also present, too. These enlarged initials are decorated often with an arabesque feature--and might be considered as fine examples of the feature. Rubrics in minuscules introduce new parts of the text. White space occurs at the end of these.
