1501 Vision of St Bernard Clairvaux INCUNABLE Cistercian Salicetus Antidotarius

About the item

Nicolaus Salicetus was a 15th-century German Cistercian monk known for his devotional prayer book ‘Antidotarius Animae’. This work was written at a time when the ‘Vision of Saint Bernard’ was at its height – a vision of a monk and a nun kneeling at the feet of Christ on the Cross covered in blood. This theme was popular during the 13th-century during Bernard of Clairvaux’s ministry; the story has it that he was praying in church alone when the figure of Christ in the church leaned down and embraced the monk. Salicetus’s ‘Antidotarius’ claims to reproduce the prayer that prompted Christ’s embrace of Bernard. The prayer includes devotions on each of Jesus’s wounds, focusing primarily on the blood of Christ. A portion of Salicetus’s devotion is as follows: “Wounds of blood-red ruby droplets, Driven deep-set as in goblets: These inscribe upon my heartbeat, Make my joining to you replete— At every moment loving you. Whoso comes to you to drink deep And embraces these your pierced feet, Healed of want, departs from this source Granted grace of lasting recourse; With kisses wets your feet anew.” A fascinating and truly remarkable incunable printing from Venice by Lucantonio Giunta Florentini. $2,500.00 In stock Add to cart Free shipping wordwide!
