La Légende dorée (Legenda aurea) est un ouvrage rédigé en latin par Jacques de Voragine entre 1261 et 1266 qui raconte la vie des saints, saintes et martyrs chrétiens ainsi que certains épisodes de la vie du Christ et de la Vierge, suivant le calendrier liturgique Jacques de Varagine a puisé en particulier dans le Protévangile de Jacques, l'Évangile de Nicodème, dans le Speculum historiale de Vincent de Beauvais, dans les textes de Grégoire de Tours, de saint Augustin, de saint Jérôme, de Cassien. Il s'est efforcé de ne pas recourir aux légendes de saints locaux Initialement intitulée Legenda sanctorum alias Lombardica hystoria, qui signifie littéralement " ce qui doit être lu des saints ou histoire de la Lombardie ", cette oeuvre est rapidement appelée Legenda aurea car son contenu, d'une grande valeur, est aussi précieux que l'or. Outre les vies de saints, environ 40 % de la Légende dorée est consacrée aux explications des fêtes religieuses principales, qui renvoient à la vie du Christ. L'ensemble des vies de saints et des explications de fêtes religieuses est présenté dans l'ordre du calendrier, à partir de l'avent. L'abrégé d'histoire de l'Europe qu'il donne, commençant au VIe siècle avec l'arrivée des Lombards, lui vaut également le nom d'Histoire lombarde Typographie soignée avec de grandes marges et bien rubricatée avec la typographie de Octavianus Scotus, au verso, le numéro de la dernière feuille. # Goff J-120a; # Polain n ° 2201; # Catholic Encyclopedia; # pas Hain, BMC, Stillwell. THE UNIQUE LEGENDA AUREA!! ~ A rare incunable fron 1480!! Richly decorated with more than 281 fleuronnees-inititials. New typography with large margins and nicely rubricated with typographical printer's device of Octavius Scotus on the verso of the last numbered leaf. The manuscript at hand is an edition of Jacobus de Voragine's Legenda Aurea. This collection of legends about the life of numerous saints, written between 1263 and 1273, is seen today as the most famous and most popular chapbook of the Middle Ages. The saints vita's were collocated along the ecclesiastical year. They were provided with substantial explanations of the great holidays Christmas, Epiphany, Easter, Ascension Day, Pentecost and of the liturgical customs. This way, the book does not only serve as a daily edification, but also as a "manual for reflection and contemplation" during the feast days. Local legends were often extended to the saints' legends written by Jacobus de Voragine too. Between the leaves 256-289 verso, you will find some early enlargements, for example first Saint Lazarus' legend (lvs. 256-258), and beginning with leaf 274, you find a study about Thomas the Apostle. The gorgeously large Fleuronée-initials are especially striking. They are often stretched out over three lines, but some of them even over fourteen lines. A gorgeous initial is as large as a whole page. The initials are alternative red and blue. Red initials are decorated with blue patterns, the blue ones are decorated with copious red patterns. The letters are filled with embellishments, leafages and ornaments. At the same time several slightly curved embellishments are stretched out right over the space and accompany the columns and the edges. These embellishments often capture the edge of a whole page. The stylishly in red and blue coloured letters stand in a beautiful contrast to the nice, framing patterns. Together, they build a nice unity. N° de réf. du libraire 000072
