Medieval Manuscripts: Bread in the 15th-century

NOVEMBER 17, 2017 BY NATALIE ANDERSON

By Eberhard König and Carlos Miranda García-Tejedor

SNIPPET:

The situation in the miniature of brown bread (f. 61v) is completely different: the setting is the public bakery, the sort that used to exist in towns and villages. Several balls of dough can be seen on boards mounted on trestles. A group of women has gone to bake their bread; one of them uses a pallet to put the two loaves into the oven. The baked bread, easily distinguished from the white dough on the boards, is put into a large basket.

Original description of the miniature f. 61:

Electio: qui minus habet furfuris et steterit per noctem ante coctionem.

Nocumentum: inducit pruritum et scabiem.
Remotio nocumenti: cum copanagio unctuoso.
Quid generat: nutrimentum bonum. Conuenitomnibus complexionibus etatibus temperatibus et regionibus habitatis.

Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
