This masterpiece has 205 pages of prayers and passages used in the Roman Catholic Church’s daily services. It was probably used in St Leonard’s Priory at Mousehold Heath, Norwich, from 1420, and was illuminated with gold leaf and blue, red and black ink. The Tollemach family of Helmingham Hall, Suffolk, were a tolerated Catholic family when they bought the manuscript during the Protestant Reformation in the late 1500s. We anticipate that this piece will have wide appeal to local historians, those with an interest in theology or ecclesiastical history - as well as many of our museum supporters.
