Roman Catholic Church. Processional (Dominican).
Venice: Johann Emerich, 1494
|A processional was a Church service book which contained the chants and prayers used for liturgical processions. This page from a Dominican processional is devoted to the feast of the Ascension. We see instructions for the procession, a response, music, and a woodcut depicting Christ ascending into heaven as his disciples look on.
