There is a very interesting report on Richard’s Prayer Book at http://www.itv.com/news/central/2015-02-20/ancient-prayer-books-sheds-new-light-on-richard-iii/ The photograph is by ITV News Central. There is a video for those who have the right device, which I, unfortunately, do not.

One thought on “Richard’s Prayer Book….

  1. Oh, so that’s how big (or small) his book of hours was. I had been wondering. It’s about the same size as a modern-day book of the Liturgy of the Hours (Divine Office — same thing as what Richard had, only much less artistic in modern print).

    The Liturgy is so complicated to learn, I had to buy a separate book explaining how to do it. Richard, of course, likely learned at his mother’s knee.

    His book is so utilitarian, I’ve no doubt he used it, at least for the morning and night prayers. I doubt he had time for much else.
