ABSTRACT
Examines the development of the illustrated prayer book in Germany and argues that the "cura monialium" provided a seminal context for the development of early illustrated prayer books. Belief that we take for granted that images formed an indispensable part of prayer; Fact that the integration of pictures with prayer was a late development in the history of medieval piety; Ancestry of the Prayer Book of Hildegard of Bingen, which is considered the most profusely illustrated prayer book from the 12th century Germany.
