Rule of the Brotherhood of Our Lady of Creaçón

15th century.

Burgos Cathedral.

Precious codex on very fine vellum and preserved in Burgos Cathedral.

This codex stands out for its splendid miniatures. The artist is a consummate colourist and both the composition and the backgrounds denote Flemish technique and a rare luminosity, characteristic of the best books of hours.

Humanistic bookplate lettering.

The rule of 1494 must have had a certain educational purpose.

Its reform was approved by Bishop Luis de Acuña, whose portrait and coat of arms stand out in the ornamentation.
