  • (DEVOTIONAL MANUSCRIPT.)

    German manuscript prayer book, the title page reading “Geistlicher Blumenkranz von auserlesenen Fragen / Morgen-Meß- Beicht-Kommunion / Wochen-Abend und andern aus den Psalmen David gezogen / Andacht eines frommen Christen / Zusammengeflochten Anno 1788. [Spiritual flower wreath of selected questions / Devotional of a devout Christian with morning mass, confession, communion. / Week night and others pulled from David’s psalms / Braided together in the year 1788].. [Tyrol], 1788

    This interesting German personal devotional manuscript was “braided together” as the title page notes, from the psalms and other sacred texts and prayers. Its provenance suggests that it came from the Tyrol, in the Alps in western Austria.
