CHD Calendar from Rouen c.1510
Heures à l'usage de Rouen
Copenhagen KB Ms. GkS 1609 4°

|Books of Hours||Calendars||CHD Guides||CHD Home||Tutorial|

The rubricated days are in gold (here in bold red), - the other days are alternating in blue and red. The alternating colours has been demonstrated in the transcription of another earlier Rouen Calendar. The key saints in this calendar are the rubricated entries of St.Romain (Oct. 23) and the translation of St.Sauveur (Aug.6). To give an impression of the differences between this and any other calendar, has it been compared with two other widespread contemporary types:
(P) The traditional Paris Calendar (See: The Paris Calendar)
(T) Calendar in: Heures à l'usage de Rome, Printed for Antoine Vérard, Paris 1490 (See: The T-Group Calendar )
If a saint is present in both (P) and (T) on the same day, is it obvious that the name is useless as an indicator for the location. There is nothing profound or sophisticated in this method - other calendars will of course share some common saints with many calendars, especially of the full composite type. It is, however, the only effective method by which students can become familiar with the comparative method. Systems where calendars are compared by matchings in "percentage" are invalid and sometimes rightout misleading, as explained in the general introduction.
