From the Rare Books Collection. This antiphonal manuscript, circa 16th century, is believed to be of Spanish origin. An antiphoner is a Catholic liturgical book containing antiphons and responsories for the Daily Office, the set of eight daily prayer services held by members of the clergy. This antiphoner covers the summer half of of the Temporale calendar, which is the period from Easter through the post-Pentecost season. It was likely copied before the Council of Trent because it still contains sequences. The appendix contains material for St. Catherine of Siena, who was canonized in 1461. The volume contains Office material, so it was likely used in a monastery.
