Image Title: Historiated Dedication Border

Description: This page features a dedication from the author, Maximilian Gandoph von Künburg, written in German against the backdrop of curtains and drapery. Saint Virgil holds a miniature of the city of Salzburg and a crozier on one side of the text, and Saint Rupert of Salzburg holds a book and a crozier on the other. A nimbus glows around each saint’s mitre. Cherubs suspended in the right and left top corners draw back curtains that frame the image.
