O Intemerata

The second prayer to the Virgin Mary in the book of hours is O Intemerata. (O Unspotted). The prayer dates back to the 12th century and has many variations. The version I used dates to the 15th century. 

This is the last section to complete before I finally get to start working on the actual hours for which these books are known. The Calendars, Gospels and Prayers to the Virgin have taken almost two years to complete due to my very busy schedule, but I am still very much enjoying this project. 

I opted to present a story with this prayer, noting the New Eve and Last Adam.
