What Is A Book of Hours?
Books of Hours were popular medieval Christian devotional works that included selections from the Bible, often from the Gospels and psalms, and included prayers to be read at various hours of the day. Elizabeth de Bohun (née de Badlesmere), Countess of Northampton (1313–1356), a powerful and connected woman in England, commissioned this luxurious, illuminated, and expensive manuscript. The earlier biblical texts were written on scrolls made from papyrus(a plant-based paper) or parchment(animal skins that had been scraped, burnished, and stitched together). It is very likely that all biblical books were initially written on scrolls. Only in the second or third century AD did scribes begin to write on papyrus or parchment that was folded and stitched into a codex, which more closely resembles our modern print book.
