Provenance and Acquisition
Liturgical evidence for the church of St. Jerome, Spoleto. The diocese of Spoleto had no community of Jeronimites. The church of St. Jerome at Spoleto itself had an adjacent oratory for the confraternity of St. Jerome, assisted by a canon of the collegiate church of St. Peter. At the nearby village of Monte Luco there was an eremo dedicated to St. Jerome. The many other oratories in the diocese can hardly be the places for which such an elaborate book could have been made.
