Trinity

Trinity from the Antiphoner

This illuminated letter ‘G’ is the antiphon for Trinity Sunday. It begins “Gloria tibi Trinitas equalis una deitas” God the Father sits as if a medieval King enthroned. He holds his crucified Son and presents this image of divine suffering to the world which is interpreted by the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove. As far as we are aware, this is the only such English manuscript illustration of this image.
