Although Pope John XXII had extended the Feast of
the Trinity to the Universal Church in 1334, Jean
Colombe did not choose to illustrate the beginning
of its office with a representation of the Three
Instead, he showed Christ in a church with stained-glass windows representing large figures, blessing with His right hand and holding the globe with a cross in His left hand. His arched brow, flowing hair, and double pointed beard conform to the fashion of the day.
The large B which marks the beginnings of the introit of the Mass for the Trinity also dates from the time of Jean Colombe.
