Gospel Sequences and scenes from the Pilgrimage of Jesus Christ

Texts and Images

These extracts from the four Gospels begin with the opening of St John’s Gospel which focuses on Christ’s incarnation. St Luke’s account of the Annunciation and the story of the Magi from St Matthew’s Gospel follow. The series ends with St Mark’s account of Christ’s Ascension. Large images of the Evangelists introduce their respective Gospel Sequences. Every page has a marginal miniature from the cycle illustrating the French poem Pilgrimage of Jesus Christ.
