Coloured initial from BL Royal 13 C V, f. 5v

The British Library,


Following the numbered list of chapters (some of the numbers are visible through the parchment in the right-hand column), the start of the main text is introduced by a large red initial 'B' and opening words in capital letters (now darkened to a silvery black, due to oxidisation). Image taken from f. 5v of Historia Ecclesiastica Gentis Anglorum, with preface and tables of chapters, imperfect at the end. Written in Latin.
