#ManuscriptMonday: An initial D from a fragment of a 14th-century prayerbook that survived as part of John Bagford’s Fragmenta Manuscripta collection. The beginning of the prayer reads “Deus propicius esto michi peccatori et esto custos mei omnibus diebus vite mee…” [God, be merciful on me, a sinner, and guard me all the days of my life…]⠀
