Arbuthnott Missal

Transcribed between 1471 and 1491 for use in Arbuthnott Church, Kincardineshire, it is the only missal of the pre-Reformation Scottish use now extant. The Sarum use is followed, but there are also masses for St. Columba, St. Ternan (patron of Arbuthnott), and St. Ninian. Prepared at the expense of Sir Robert Arbuthnott by James Sibbald, vicar of Arbuthnott, it includes an obituary of the Arbuthnott family from 1314 to 1551 and is notable for its ornaments of flowers, leaves, scrolls and fruit, showing the beginnings of the Renaissance style. It is preserved along with the Arbuthnott Prayer Book and the Arbuthnott Psalter in Paisley Museum.
