Fulda Sacramentary

Fulda, Germany, 980 CE

 

Below is the calendar page known as the Fulda Sacramentary fragment. In the center is Annus, the year. Day and night are in the round medallions at the top and bottom. In each corner of the inner panel stands a season, and the twelve months appear in flanking vertical columns, January (top left) through June to the left and July (top right) through December to the right.

Botanists are among those who know that, in spite of the rude shocks of life,
it is well to have lived, and to have seen the everlasting beauty of the world.
