The only known volumes (9 in number) of MSS. by the historian and hagiographer Johannes Gielcmans are now in the National Library of Austria. Gielemans had been choirmaster of the Austin Friars at the Red-monastery near Brussels, where he lived and worked from 1460 till his death in 1487. His earliest surviving work is the Sanctilogium: 4 volumes written on paper (Cod. Vind. Ser. N. 12811-12814). The second volume bears the date 1471, the third, 1479. The volumes comprise roughly 1000 short summaries of saints' lives. The Sanctilogium is sparsely illuminated. What stands out is the colour-printed leaf in the 2nd volume, stuck on to a piece of paper pasted in between the preliminary matter and the corpus of the book. The leaf contains an illustration of a 'mercy-seat', with Angel and donator figure. Except for the figures of Christ and the donator, the woodcut has been coloured by means of the printing process. The text under the picture has been printed by the block-book process, and consists of a hymn in three sections to the persons of the Trinity. In view of the printing and scribal activities of the Windesheim congregation, to which the Red-monastery belonged, the leaf probably came from those surroundings. As far as the dating is concerned, the date 1471 from the second volume can be taken as a terminus ante quem.
