The town, then under the Fugger dynasty, was not only an important place of commerce and finance, but also one of the major centres of German book illumination. The book was commissioned by Kasimir, Margrave of Brandenburg-Ansbach and his wife, Susanna of Bavaria, whose portraits and coats of arms decorate the manuscript. Margarine Susanna was the niece of Emperor Maximilian, a generous patron of the arts throughout his life. He commissioned works from some of
the greatest European painters, such as Dürer, Cranach and Holbein.
