A rare look at the Vatican Library's treasures

This is a Devotional music book commissioned by Pope Leo the Tenth
( 11 December 1475 – 1 December 1521
 
 

Chant manuscript parchment ca. 1520 ( ? )

This manuscript is one of the most beautiful and elaborately illuminated chant manuscripts of the Capella Sistina collection.

It was written for the great patron of the arts, Pope Leo X (Giovanni de' Medici) (1513-21).

The opening displayed here is sumptuously decorated in gold, indigo, ruby, and other vibrant colors, with the initial O encircling Christ and his apostles.

The lower border shows the Medici coat of arms (six balls in a three-two-one configuration) with the lion heads symbolically representing the pope, Leo X.
