Note: In red in the Calendar are Genevieve, Denis, Louis of France and the donor of the Grande Chartreuse, Hugo Gratianopolitanus (1 April), as well as the name of a celebrated Carthusian, Hugo Lincolniensis (16 November). One also finds in black under 4 February ‘Tricennium domine Iohanne regine Francie’, referring to the daughter of Louis XI and Marguerite de Savoie, Jeanne de Valois (1464-1505) who became Queen of France for a brief period in 1498. The Breviary is most likely of French Carthusian provenance.
