Abstract

Late medieval Books of Hours have long been a favoured area of research for scholars and much has also been written about the medieval hunt, particularly its aristocratic aspects. However, there has been no real attempt to integrate these two areas of knowledge in order to produce a clearer understanding of personal prayer books, their content, and the motives and personalities of their patrons. This analysis of MS Egerton 1146, a virtually unpublished Book of Hours in the British Library, is an endeavour to remedy this gap.
