Hours of Pierre de Bosredont
Gift of the Trustees of the William S. Glazier Collection, 1984
Trinity: Mercy Seat — God, nimbed and wearing a cross-surmounted papal tiara is seated on a throne supporting a cross to which Christ is affixed with three nails. He has a cross-projecting nimbus and is wearing a short loincloth. Hovering between them is the dove of the Holy Ghost, which is nimbed. The throne is surrounded by three sections of tapestry. The center section is inscribed TU REX GLORIE CHRISTE TU PATRIS SEMPITERNUS ES FILIUS TU AD LIBERANDUM. The scene is set in a windowed room.
The margins are decorated with floreate ornament, including a viola and a strawberry, inhabited by a rabbit. The heraldic shield of Pierre de Bosredont (quarterly, vair and gules) is in the lower margin.
