Penmanship

The “Good King Réné,” titular king of Naples in the middle of the fifteenth century, was noted for his initial letters.

St. Theela, of Isauria, wrote the entire Scriptures out without a blot or mistake. St. Theodosius wrote the Gospels in letters of gold without a single mistake or blur. (See Longfellow's Golden Legend, iv.) (See Angel.)
