Description

Spectacular manuscript that by avatars of fate is kept in the Gerona Diocesan Museum. This Martyrology copies the one that Usuardo finished in the year 860, and to which later some more saints have been added. From Usuardo we know that between 841 and 847 he was a monk at Saint-Germain-des-Prés, in Paris. His trip through Spain in 858 was key for him to include Spanish saints in his Martyrology.

Unanimously considered to be the most magnificent work of the International Gothic.
