Composite Universal Calendar c.1520-30
[A kalendar of this type was composed to represent as many dioceses as possible for commercial purpose. Most of the rubricated feasts have their origin in the Gregorian Sacramentary and were valid all over Europe, supplemented with never feasts and especially the popular female saints Katherina, Margaret and Barbara. The influence from France is, however, strong and obvious when it is compared with commercial calendars printed as woodcuts for sale on the open market in Germany from c.1450 ("Almanachs"), cf. the kalendar of Johannes de Gamundia. The editor of a kalendar like this used a printed copy of the Martyrologium Romanum, and picked a saint for all the days where no obvious feast was available. Since it includes all common popular feasts is it particulary well suited for analysis of other kalendars. Students with little experience can save a lot of effort by eliminating the saints listed here (unless the rank is raised to a higher degree), and concentrate on the few names left over, which then will be characteristic for the local use represented. It will reduce the number of saints to be identified to less than 30. To comment on each of the saints listed here would be absurd, since they are picked more or less at random among the saints in a martyrology, and do not represent any actual liturgy. Similar calendars are common in psalters and books of hours printed from around 1500, and this is perhaps a copy after such a printed edition. For unexplained reasons are 8 days left empty. Most of these could easily have been provided with a suitable saint (inserted here within brackets), only 14 July does not have an obvious candidate. June 14th has several possibilities: Rufi et Valeriani mrm., Translatio Basilii epi. and Helizei prophete, to mention some. The empty days are perhaps caused by former entries of the change of zodiac or indications like "Incipiunt dies caniculares" etc. which the scribe might have found irrelevant.]
