Part of the binding of a Gospel which was dedicated to the Church of the Holy Saviour in Adrianople in 1676. The scene of the Crucifixion is set between two spiral columns and is surrounded by vine branches with busts of the Apostles, Christ Enthroned and sleeping Jesse. The representation of Christ the Vine comes from frontispiece woodcuts of Greek Gospels printed in Venice. The presence of Jesse in the image is a common addition to wooden and silver pectorals of the time. Copper gilt replica.
