Salisbury Book of Hours, 1514


Aka the Sarum Book of ‘Hours’, the Daily Offices prescribed for its monastic house, which Richard Pynson printed in London; one copy survives, at Clare Coll Cambridge. This was one of a series of medieval liturgical productions from the cathedral church of Salisbury, Wilts. The ‘Hours’ refer to the set rhythm of prayer through each 24-hour period. Some of their rediscovered traditions have influenced 20-th c trends in the CofE. No.839.
