MASTER of the Registrum Gregorii
(active c. 972-1000)

Registrum Gregorii

Manuscript (Ms. 14 bis)
Musée Condé, Chantilly

This codex is the work of an artistically outstanding anonymous painter who took his name, Gregory Master, from this codex. Work in a group of late 10th-century codices, most of them produced for churches in Trier between 980 and 996, is also attributed to this artist.

The manuscript was given to the Trier Cathedral by Egbert, Archbishop of Trier. The miniature shown here portrays either Emperor Otto II or his son Otto III, to whom four female figures, personifying the four provinces of his empire (Germania, Francia, Italia, Alemannia), pay homage.
